Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory features the city of Ningde, which is located in southeastern China along the shore of Sansha Bay.

As one of the world’s most concentrated hubs of aquaculture, the city is surrounded by floating villages, seaweed farms, and hundreds of thousands of fish cages.

This image was captured on April 8, 2017 by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8.
