Xianghe Leisure Fishing Farm used to be a fish farm, located near the
entrance of the Aogu Wetland Forest Park. After 10 years of
refurbishment, it has currently obtained the "Environmental Education
Facility" certification. In addition to being a good locale to learn about
the Aogu Wetlands and fish farming, the farm is also based on the
story of the pirate "Cai Qian" who was active in the coastal areas of
Zhejiang, Fujian, Guangdong and the Taiwan Strait in the early years.
The theme of the farm is the "Cai Qian Pirate Village", and interesting
experiences such as pirate ships can be found on the farm. A rural
kitchen was launched in 2020, making it a base of leisure and
recreation in the Aogu Wetland.

CHEF Cai Gong He
Learn Local Dishes in Rural Village, Recognize the Taste of Taiwan！
Visitors gather in a culinary classroom that resembles a pirate ship, and the
pirate chef will teach everyone how to bake Taiwan sea bream with salt, cook a bowl
of prawn soup, and make "fresh oyster rice bowl". A small bowl of fried rice is filled
with dozens of fat oysters where one can taste the local ingredients of Dongshi in
each mouthful. Each bite encompasses the fresh taste and story of the ingredients,
each mouthful brings on the hardship and joy of a pirate, leaving one with nothing
but a smile.

delicious and sought after local flavors, especially the fresh oysters here which are
known as "milk oysters", symbolising that they are as pure as milk and have high
Beneficial to the purification of water, and also rich in plant collagen, elastic fiber and
mucopolysaccharide. Xianghe Fishing Farm has devoted itself to seaweed farming shortly after
the farm opened, creating a friendly environment of mangrove ecology, and using low-carbon
seaweeds to farm low-density fish, shrimp, crabs, shellfish and snails to form a food chain without
the need for chemicals, coupled with a smart water-quality management system to produce
seaweeds of high nutrition and high collagen content.
#Salt-baked Taiwan Seabream with Herbs
Taiwan Seabream is also known as ‘Wu Guo Fish’,
which was full of an earthy taste due to poor breeding techniques in the early years. In recent
times, with the development of aquaculture and fishery technology, resulting in the upgrade of fish
food and water quality, Taiwan sea bream has become an excellent edible fish with a fresh and
sweet taste with no earthy flavor. In the rural kitchen of the pirates, simple ingredients such as
coarse salt are used to bake sea bream, for a taste of the simple and natural sweetness.
#Fruit and seaweed rolls
Using fresh seaweed from Xianghe Haicai Pond, added with cabbage,
kiwi, small tomatoes and other local vegetables and fruits, and a slight addition of
vinegar and sauce for a refreshing taste of vegetables, fruits and seaweed.
#Seafood Clam Soup
Using locally farmed white shrimp and clams from Waisandingzhou, as well
as rural ingredients such as tofu and eggs to present a bowl of hot soup filled with
the flavors of the ocean.
#Fresh Oyster Rice Bowl
This is the biggest highlight of the pirate rural kitchen. The fresh oysters
from Waisandingzhou and Dongshi Aogu Wetland Seaside are cooked in a simple
blanching method, then spread on the rice. The fresh oysters are plentiful, and can
be spread in several layers on the rice, bringing a strong sense of happiness and
visual splendour to the pupils.
