Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, inspected the Samchon Catfish Farm together with Ri Sol Ju.
Going round the room for education in the revolutionary history, the room dedicated to the history of the farm, the sci-tech learning space, the general control room, open-air fishponds, the breeding catfish block and other various places of the farm, Supreme Leader of the Party, state and army Kim Jong Un learned in detail about the production there.
Enjoying the front view of the farm building, he said with great satisfaction that the splendidly and tidily tiled outer walls, which had been painted before, looks cleaner and nicer, adding it is a very spectacular and perfect farm flawless in production environment and architectural aesthetic aspects.
He highly praised the officials and employees of the farm for further sprucing up it and overfulfilling the plan for producing 3 000 tons of catfish a year set by the Party.
The farm, which used to turn out 300 tons of catfish on an annual average, produced 3 001 tons last year after its rebuilding on an expansion basis, he noted, adding this means that the farm has produced in just one year what it had to produce in more than 10 years. He said with great satisfaction that it is possible to supply servicepersons with 10 times more fish than before and that the renovation of the farm has taken effect and it is a farm whose modernization has paid off.
Stressing the need for the farm to become an engine leading the fish farming field of the country and a pioneer, educator and pedigree farm for the dissemination of ultra-modern fish farming technology, he set forth the tasks and ways for it.
He gave valuable teachings concerning the management and operation of the farm and the fish farming field, including the issue of keeping researches to meet the goal of shortening the catfish production cycle and lowering the feed unit to the worldwide level.
Watching stacks of frozen catfish at a freezing warehouse, he said they looked like the piled gold ingots, repeatedly praising the farm as an asset farm. He called on the farm to greet the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Republic with proud labor achievements.
He said that the Party is fully relieved as the Samchon Fish Farm is taken charge of by the People’s Army, asking the farm to over-fulfill the catfish production plan without fail this year, too, and thus fully display the soldier spirit, stamina and traits.
He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Hwang Pyong So, Jo Yong Won, O Il Jong, Kim Yong Su and Kim Chang Son.
