Fishery & Species

Chiba Prefecture, adjacent to Tokyo, host a water system that are less urbanized in order to provide farming water supply which leaves nesting opportunities for variety of freshwater fish.

Where we went out, I spotted following species: common carp, crucian carp, dace (roach), chub, snakehead, and largemouth bass.
