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 May 9 Catfish Farm which has turned into another model and standard farm for the country's pisciculture by putting its fish breeding on a scientific, intensive and industrial basis of high level.
When visiting the farm in December last year, he named it May 9 Catfish Farm in the meaning that its employees should work hard, always remembering the day leader Kim Jong Il visited it for the first time. And he personally chose the site for a mosaic depicting the tender-hearted image of Kim Jong Il and a monument to his field guidance to be built in the compound of the farm.
Kim Jong Un praised the officials and employees of the farm for having successfully renovated it while carrying out its production assignment, noting that servicepersons and civilians are supplied on a regular basis with catfish from the farm according to the supply system established by Kim Jong Il.
He went round a monument to the field guidance of the peerlessly great persons of Mt. Paektu and the newly-built room for education in the revolutionary history.
He said that the May 9 Catfish Farm is the country's first catfish farm built under the meticulous guidance and care of
Kim Jong Il and he is a pioneer of the country's catfish breeding.
Then he toured combined control room, sci-tech room, incubation pond, indoor pond, water filtering place and other parts of the farm to learn in detail about its production and modernization.
He said that the farm has made a lot of achievements in the work to drastically raise the production of catfish without increasing manpower and production area, as instructed by him during his last year's visit.
The experience of the farm shows that a brisk drive for putting pisciculture on a scientific, intensive and industrial basis should be conducted by dint of science and technology to make a great success in fish breeding, he said, urging all other units in the field of fish culture to learn from the farm's experience.He highly appreciated the feats of the officials and employees of the farm, scientists and technicians and soldier-builders who turned the farm into a proud edifice in the era of the Workers' Party.
