A naked carp swims upstream in Shaliu River, Gangca County of northwest China's Qinghai Province, July 6, 2019. The species of carp, known in China as huangyu, is endemic to the Qinghai Lake, China's largest inland saltwater lake located on the plateau. From late May to mid-August every year, the carp swim upstream to freshwater rivers to spawn, with the migration peaking in late June. The fish was listed on the China Species Red List in 2004 due to overfishing and habitat loss. Thanks to the increased efforts of volunteers and intensified law enforcement, the stock of the carp in the lake has largely climbed in recent years. (Xinhua/Liu Jinhai)
