Fish farming in Lake Maninjau

One of the attractions in Lake Maninjau that fascinated me was the fish farming.

Fish farms ring all round the side of the lake. At night they are lit up.

Young fish are bred in the fish farms and just like food crops are "harvested" when fully grown and sold to restaurants and some kept for self-consumption.

Cats roam around hoping for a free meal.

The lake looks inviting, good for a dip. But the locals say the water is dirty. Throughout my stay I did not see a single swimmer. But on a previous visit, I had a dip in the lake. Refreshing.
