When it comes down to sightseeing and tourism, Kinmen spares no efforts. The government even set up a marine lab for the public to visit and experience for themselves. Not only is there aquatic products for purchase, but its also an attraction suitable for children. The Kinmen Fisheries Research Institute is a conservation center for horseshoe crabs. With a prehistoric legacy, horseshoe crabs have much value worth conserving and is also a mascot used to ward off evil spirits by every household in Kinmen. The pond in the exhibition area and outdoor cultivation area are where you may meet these creatures. You can also make an appointment to have a specialist explain for you. Another point of interest is Kinmen's method of raising and cultivating oysters using stone strips, with them cbeing alled " stone oysters". Located near the exhibition area's entrance is an exhibition area for the stone oysters, using different environments to create different methods of cultivation.
