Why Floating Fish Farm is special ?
The floating Fish Farm is located on the Kilim River, and can be accessed by a boat from the Kilim Jetty in about 10 minutes. This fish farm is a typical stop during the Kilim Geopark Tour. So how does it float on water? The entire fish farm has been created on an wooden (timber) platform. It has several water tanks where different types of fish are kept.
And the entire platform rests on large number of empty drums fixed under it that float on water, and also keep the platform afloat. It is actually a show farm for the tourists. There is actually no fish culture done here for commercial production. In any case, it is a great and a novel place to visit, and see the different species of fish that exist in Langkawi's water.
What to explore at Floating Fish Farm?
The boat goes and noses into a small jetty or a platform fixed to the fish farm. The surrounding area is wonderful. You will see high limestone cliffs along the shore that rise from the bottom forming shapes of mountains. The dense mangroves also fringe the shore line. You will notice many floating houses on the water area here that are privately owned, and lots of sailboats moored all around making a picturesque setting.
As you walk around the fish farm, you will see separate water sections for different species of fish. One such section is for black stingrays that are huge in size. The local guide at the farm hand feeds the stingrays and even turns them over to show you where the mouth is. You will be surprised to see that mouth of the fish is not exactly where you expect it to be.
How to get to Floating Fish Farm?
You will either need to take a boat rental or a Kilim Geopark boat tour to access the floating fish farm. Check out Kilim Geopark & Mangrove Tour to know about the boat locations, tour details and the rates.
