Fishing huts are very important but simple buildings for aquaculture in Taiwan. One of the important functions of fishing huts is to store feed and fish farming tools, therefore a firm structure for the fishing hut is what a fisherman cares about . Most fishing huts in ChengLong area are made of bricks, and some of them are coated with cement on the wall.There are three main materials using for the roof of huts: roofing tile, sheet metal, and some old asbestos tile.
The fishing huts we are going to use for the 2014 ChengLong Wetlands International Environmental Art Project are located along a north-south road. We tried to measure all details of 3 fishing huts for you to give artists a better idea about dimensions when proposing an artwork for 2014:
The dimensions of fishing huts in ChengLong are all about 320 cm(L) × 380 cm(W) × 200~300 cm(H).
成龍地區的魚寮尺寸大約為：320 cm(長) × 380 cm(寬) × 200~300 cm(高)
For convenience, fishing huts are usually built close to the road and just next to the fish ponds. Generally, the door (or front side) of a fishing hut is designed to face south. It will keep the hut cool in the summer and warm in the winter in this direction.
Some fishing huts have a window on each wall; some fishing huts only have one or two windows. The windows are generally closed.
