Visit to Newly-built Sunchon Catfish Farm
Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, gave field guidance to the newly-built Sunchon Catfish Farm.

After looking round the mosaic painting depicting the benevolent image of Chairman Kim Jong Il in the compound of the farm, he was briefed on the farm before a map showing its bird's eye view.

The farm, with a total floor space of more than 24 120 square metres, consists of districts for production, auxiliary production, welfare and others and its production capacity is 1 200 tons per year.

In December 2015, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un took a step to build a catfish farm with a large capacity in the Sunchon area of South Phyongan Province before other provinces, and guided how to design it and personally solved all problems arising in its construction.

The officials, builders and volunteers of the province inaugurated the farm and started its production in October last by conducting a dynamic campaign from the outset of its construction.

Noting that the farm, well built in a tidy and neat way, is in an excellent location to always ensure warm water vital to the growth of catfish by using the waste water from the Sunchon Thermal Power Plant, the Supreme Leader said that South Phyongan Province took the lead in implementing the Party's policy of building a modern catfish farm put on a Juche, scientific, intensive and industrial basis.

He went round the room dedicated to the history of the farm, a sci-tech learning space, combined production control room, hatchery, indoor fattening ground, plastic-walled pools, feed processing plant, material storage, freezing storage and other parts of the farm to learn in detail about its construction and production.

He gave instructions on its management and operation, stressing the need for it to set an ambitious goal and put production on a normal track.

The farm, which came to being amid the struggle to implement the decision of the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea, is a precious creation of the officials, Party members and other working people in South Phyongan Province who have turned out with optimism about the future in reliance on their own efforts, he said. He added that his confidence grows stronger upon hearing that the people in the province came to keenly feel again, through the construction of the farm, that they can do anything and be better off when they give play to the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.

He highly appreciated the feats performed by the officials, builders and volunteers for building the perfect farm as intended by the Party, saying he was very satisfied with the farm completed to be impeccable even in the distant future.

He expressed expectation and belief that its officials and employees would surely turn out 1 200 tons of catfish every year for the people in the province under the banner of scientific fish farming, and had a photo session with them.

Accompanying him were O Su Yong and Pak Thae Song, vice-chairmen of the WPK Central Committee, and Jo Yong Won, deputy department director of the WPK Central Committee.
