The respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un gave field guidance to the newly built Station for Stocking Lake Yonphung with Fishes.

Being briefed on the station before a map showing its bird’s-eye view, he learned about its construction.

The Station for Stocking Lake Yonphung with Fishes is situated in Sonam-dong of Kaechon City. Its plottage is more than 10 000 square meters and its total building area is at least 1 260 square meters. It has an office-building, public welfare establishment, hatchery, outdoor fishing ponds, etc. It is the mandarin fish breeding base capable of producing tens of thousands of young mandarin fishes and hundreds of thousands of food-fish in a year.

After receiving the report that the construction of the station was near to completion, the respected Supreme Leader sent breeding mandarin fishes to the station two times. With the inauguration ceremony as an occasion, the station put tens of thousands of young mandarin fishes that were hatched from those breeding mandarin fishes and other kinds of hundreds of thousands of young fishes necessary for food chain in Lake Yonphung.

Going round the hatchery, outdoor fishing ponds and other processes for habituating mandarin fishes, he gave precious instructions to actively develop mandarin fishing.

He stressed the need for the station to massively raise mandarin fishes and other young fishes and put them into Lake Yonphung, as great efforts are being paid to the work for protecting and increasing fishes as valuable resources of the country on the all-Party, state and people scale.

Breeding of young mandarin fishes is the most important stage in mandarin fishing and when young fishes are raised properly at this stage, their growth accelerates, he said, underscoring the need to boost the survival rate of young mandarin fishes by conducting spawn-laying and spawn-taking on a scientific and technical basis and providing water tanks with suitable breeding density and circumstances.

He said that he has known that mandarin fishes are sensitive to water quality and like to live in dark places such as spaces among stones, giving the tasks to artificially make good habituating circumstances of mandarin fishes in fishing ponds and build more buildings for food-fish production and ponds.

He expressed the belief that the officials and employees of the Station for Stocking Lake Yonphung with Fishes will continue to increase the production of mandarin fishes and various other kinds of fry and thus make positive contributions to having Lake Yonphung teem with fishes and increasing fish resources of the country.

He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won, O Il Jong and Kim Yong Su, vice department directors of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, and Kim Chang Son, department director of the State Affairs Commission.
