Nantzuhsien Creek Fishery Sanctuary
Nantzuhsien Creek originates in the eastern foothills of Mt. Ali in Chiai County
and flows through Kaohsiung County until it joins with Kaoping Creek at Chishan.
Thanks to the pure water that runs in the main channel all year round, the creek
supports an abundance of fish. In order to maintain the fish resources of the
Sanmin Township section of Nantzuhsien Creek, and to safeguard protected
species of fish and their habitat, in May 1993 this section of the creek was
designated a fishery sanctuary.
From November of each year through May of the next is the dry season for
Nantzuhsien Creek, and is also the principal breeding season for its fish.
Therefore fishing is prohibited during this time. This area is Taiwan's sole
wildlife sanctuary that is primarily intended to protect fish, and at least ten
different species of fish live within its boundaries.
