This lake is located about 25 kms to the south of downtown Al Ain on the Al Ain-Abu Dhabi Truck Road. I've been living in Al Ain for nearly seven years now but I haven't been to this lake due to the dangers of being bitten or stung by poisonous insects and animals. This area is infested by arachnids like scorpions. Its informal name is coined due to the large number of Tilapia fish in its water (source).
Thank you to Jerry Fer Damian (also known as Geri Damian) for sharing this photo with us. Jerry is an avid follower of Al Ain City Daily Photo on Facebook. I'm sure Jerry braved all the hazardous condition to capture the mesmerizing beauty of this lake. By the way, this photo is also featured in Abu Dhabi Week Magazine. Congratulations Jerry!
