Shangzhuang Reservoir

Overview of Shangzhuang Reservoir
Located in the northwestern suburbs of Beijing, Haidian District, near the National Green Lake Wetland Park, Shangzhuang Reservoir boasts the integration of leisure resort and the barbecue culture, hailed as leader industry of Beijing. Shangzhuang Reservoir is built based on the old river with a length of approximately 4km, winding and very irregular. The Reservoir and Rice Lake are the same channels separated by a bridge. As the upstream section of the lake water is shallow, the downstream reservoir water is deep, so the annual fish upstream swims down to breed in the reservoir, so the density of fish is bigger than other large reservoirs in Beijing. In terms of the fish species, the reservoir is home to crucian carp, carp, grass carp, bighead carp, catfish, black and mandarin fish, one of the biggest carp may amount to more than 5kg, 500g of crucian carp are not uncommon.
