The living things in Nagqu
Nagqu is criss-crossed with rivers and dotted with lakes. The area is therefore very rich in fish resources. The fish in northern Tibet are known as "highland carp" and are very tasty. Fish are raised in an area of more than 3.333 million hectares of water, but in 1998 only one million kilograms were caught because of climatic restrictions, and processing and transport problems.
Dense forests grow deep in landlocked mountains in Biru, Jiali and Song counties in east Nagqu. They cover a total area of 220,000 hectares, with timber reserves reaching 10 million cubic meters. Major tree species include fir, dragon spruce, cypress, pine, broad-leaf and alpine oak trees. These resources have yet to be used.
