Breeding of rare carp aided by innovation

CHONGQING-At an altitude of 3,300 meters, the headwater region of the Yangtze River shelters numerous endangered species of wildlife.

And in the northwestern province of Qinghai, new artificial intelligence technology is being used to escort rare carp to freshwater breeding sanctuaries. Qinghai Lake, the country's largest inland saltwater lake, covers around 4,400 square kilometers and is home to the naked carp, a species native to the plateau.

Between May and August every year, the naked carp travel hundreds of kilometers upstream to spawn in fresh waters surrounding the lake. The rare carp feed on algae in Qinghai Lake and can help purify the water. In turn, they become easy prey for waterfowl and help sustain the lake's ecological balance.
