Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to Fish Farm
Pyongyang, March 11 (KCNA) -- The dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un gave field guidance to the Ryongjong Fish Farm.

He said the Ryongjong Fish Farm is a typical fish farm of the Songun era built at the initiative of leader Kim Jong Il and under his energetic guidance.

He recollected the long and tiresome journeys made by Kim Jong Il, exerting devoted efforts to bring about a fresh turn in fish breeding as required by the new century, saying he could not forget November 21, 2010 when he visited there, accompanying the leader.

At the general control room he watched the real-time measurement of the quantity, temperature, pH and oxygen content of water in indoor and outdoor fish ponds with the help of computers and underwater cameras' monitoring of the physiology of fishes.

What is important in fish breeding is to put fish farming on a scientific basis, he noted, adding this would make it possible to keep fish production going at a high rate.

He went round the fish ponds built along the water way of the Ryongjong spring.

He was pleased to watch sturgeons and fishes of various other species in the ponds.

Watching the Ryongjong spring from which water was flowing into the fish ponds in an endless stream, he recalled that when water stopped gushing out from the spring, service persons and employees of the fish farm turned out to restore it into its original state. Water supply is of particular importance for fish farming, he added.

Feasting his eyes at the food factory and protein food factory standing near the outdoor ponds, he said with deep emotion that they were visited by Kim Jong Il.

He said people cannot substantially benefit from fish farms if the supply of food for fishes is not put on a par with fish production no matter how many modern ones are built.

Seeing the letters displayed in the compound of the fish farm "Sturgeons go to sea while the DPRK advances into the world", he told the officials to add the letters "Satellites enter space". World-startling miracles are being worked in various parts of the country through a dynamic drive for breaking through the cutting edge under the wise leadership of our party, he added.

Noting that the Ryongjong Fish Farm is crystal of Kim Jong Il's love for people, he proposed erecting a monument to the undying leadership feats of Kim Jong Il and displaying his portrait in the compound of the farm to convey his loving care to posterity.

He told the officials and employees of the fish farm to play a pioneer's role in translating the desire of Kim Jong Il to provide the people with more fish into reality.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Kim Kyok Sik, Kim Yong Chol, Pak Jong Chon, Rim Kwang Il and An Ji Yong.
