Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, visited the Anbyon Fish Farm under KPA Unit 580.
The fish farm was built in September 1999 on the initiative of leader Kim Jong Il and it was visited by him on April 15 (the Day of the Sun), 2001 and in November, 2011.
Going round various parts of the farm, Kim Jong Un learned in detail about its reconstruction and fish production.
Feasting his eyes on the fishponds and production facilities standing in a crisscrossed manner along the water flowing from gushing springs, he expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the farm has undergone a complete change to look neat with picturesque environment, turning into a model fish farm and an educational unit of the country.
It is desirable to have a monument depicting the tender-hearted image of Kim Jong Il erected in the compound of the farm, a result of his love for the people, and convey his feats for all ages, he said.
At the farm’s combined control room, he watched carefully workers there conduct real-time computer-backed measure and control of temperature, ph value and amount of oxygen in fishponds and monitor the physiological condition of fishes by underwater cameras.
Underlining the need to put the fish farming on a scientific and modern basis in order to keep production going on a high rate, he praised the farm for having established the strict combined management system as intended by the Party.
Seeing a water filter installed in the springs, he praised scientists and researchers of Kim Chaek University of Technology for having rendered active support to the modernization of the farm including the establishment of its combined management system.
At a hatchery, he said it is admirable that the farm has bred fries necessary for production by its own efforts and supplied them to other units by giving fullest play to its operational capacity. Seeing a gravity-fed fishpond, he said it was built well and there is no free space left in the farm.
He urged the farm to produce in larger quantity tasty and hygienically safe fish with nutritious feed by making the maximum efficient use of existing production capacity.
Calling upon the officials and employees of the farm to play a vanguard role in the development of the country’s pisciculture, he said that the Party would provide the farm with necessary vehicles and equipment.
Accompanying him was KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the KPA General Political Bureau.
