Photographer's Note

Pearl mullet, it is only creature that can live in the saline soda waters of Lake Van.In June every year,sacred migration voyage of these fish starts.

The Pearl Mullet swims counter-current to lay its eggs and almost flies as it traverses the barriers. The migration of thousands of fish in the Fish Barrage dates back to thousands of years. Having laid their eggs in fresh water, the fish return.
