Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, gave field guidance to the August 25 Fishery Station under KPA Unit 313, which has been updated to meet the requirements of the age of knowledge-based economy and a highly civilized socialist nation and is making unprecedented achievements in fishing.
He noted with pleasure that the fishery station has been face-lifted radically as befitting the home of making the history of big fish haul and of Tanphung fishing boats.
He went round the mosaic portraying the images of smiling President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il and the monument to field guidance of the peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu newly built in the compound of the station, and then the room for education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the station's history.
He said the officials and employees of the station should always cherish the noble intention of the great leaders and realize their lifetime desire by catching more fishes for the servicepersons and civilians.
He toured different parts of the fishery station to learn in detail about its fishing, storage and modernization.
He said with great satisfaction that it is laudable that the station has worked such eye-opening miracle as catching fish equivalent to the yearly output of the past just in a day during this winter intensive fishing campaign.
He is very pleased to see the station's unloading ground, processing shop and freezing storehouses filled with fishes, he said, adding that its fishermen and their wives are patriotic families as they have made a big haul even in unfavorable conditions and all turned out in a drive for processing fishes.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the station's modernization was carried out on the highest level.
What is the most important success in its modernization drive is that the station provided a sure guarantee for supplying fresh fishes to the servicepersons and civilians in every season, he said.
The August 25 Fishery Station turned into a model and standard of the nation's fishery field and worked astounding achievements in a few years, and this is ascribable to the indomitable fighting spirit it fully displayed to implement the Party's fishing policy, he said, urging all other fishery stations across the country to actively learn from it.
He stressed the need to catch more fishes as well as strictly keep the hygienic principles in unloading, sorting, freezing, storage and supply of fishes and pay deep attention to the protection of aquatic resources.
Noting that he feels relieved to take fishy smell wafting in the compound of the fishery station, an aroma of the sea in the socialist country, he said with pleasure that it is a very wonderful and gratifying scenery.
He said that one more fairyland in the era of Songun, called "conspicuous fish scenery", could appear in the country thanks to the fishermen devotedly implementing the Party's policy.
The officials and employees of the station are precious revolutionary comrades-in-arms helping with sincerity the Supreme Commander, he said, showing deep benevolence for them.
Then, he enjoyed a performance of an art group of the station at its cultural house.
Expressing belief that the officials and employees of the station would creditably perform their duty with a desire to greet the historic 7th WPK Congress with bigger success in fishing, he had a photo session with them.
He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won, Jo Nam Jin and Han Kwang Sang.
