Tourists attend a ceremony to mark the beginning of the traditional fishing season at Chagan Lake in northeast China's Jilin province, on December 28, 2017. The first fish of the season, which represent good luck, was sold at auction for a record 918,888 yuan (around 141,033 USD). The traditional fishing season at Chagan Lake starts in December and dates back to China's Liao Dynasty (916-1125 AD). The annual event has developed into a tourism festival over the years, as tourists can not only buy fresh fish but also enjoy watching the traditional fishing methods. [Photo: VCG]
