Tour Arrangement
 
Cormorant fishing is unique in China. This way of fishing has been existing for hundreds of years already. The birds do fishing much better at night than day time. People sometimes see lights on bamboo rafts in the river. That will be the fisherman who use cormorants to fish to make extra income.

It is a rare opportunity to get a close look at the fishing and people always wonder how these birds can fish for people. Those who are interested will get the answer and experience after they make reservation. People get aboard on a big boat(passenger capacity:30-60 pax). It drifts while the bamboo rafts following so that tourists can watch the performance clearly.

With the order from fisherman, the well-trained cormorants will dive into water to find fish and catch them. They are so good at diving that they can go under water for quite a long time. When they succeed in getting any fish, they will proudly swim back to the raft and show off to the fisherman.

The fisherman usually award one or two very small fish to encourage them. Of course, the birds also swallow the small fish when they catch. Sometimes they do get big carps that weigh 3-4 pounds. With the straw or rope tied around their necks, they can not swallow these big carps they catch. To some extent, this is quite cruel and unfair to the birds. The poor but interesting birds work for man, not for themselves!

The performance generally lasts 45 minutes or so. When the performance is over, tourists surely will get a lot of ideas about how the cormorants do fishing for people.
