Visit to Kukup Fish Farm

16 October, 2009

The 2D1N Kukup package includes a guided tour of a local fish farm. At about 10am, a ferry will pick us up right from our “backyard” – the outdoor wooden platform to bring us to the fish farm which is the middle of the sea.

Ferry to Kukup Fish Farm

At the fish farm, there will be a demonstration of how the angler fish catches its prey (e.g. small insects) – by spitting water onto it, causing it to fall into the water, where they will devour it immediately.

There was also a mini “petting” zoo where you get to touch sea creatures such as starfish and a horseshoe crab. The horseshoe crab looks like something out of an Alien vs Predator movie when viewed up close.

There are also opportunities for you to shop for dried foodstuff here e.g. prawn crackers, various type of sauces and even sunglasses!

Shopping @ Fish farm

While walking around the fish farm, we sometimes have to navigate around creaking narrow wooden planks – they looked as if they will crumble at the slightest touch and yet are strong enough to hold our weight. Amazing! ๐Ÿ™‚

          Hi Jncl85 – the journey to the fish farm is actually quite short (but it can be quite rocky at times).

    Look like a fun trip to me!

    First time seeing a horseshoe crab ๐Ÿ™‚ The shell reminds me of marine ‘dinosaur’ ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVE visiting fishing town/farm. I just returned from Sekinchan fishing town. A small but wonderful town with loads of fishing activities. But, no keropok ๐Ÿ™
