Pyongyang, November 18 (KCNA) — Brisk fish farming is going on in all parts of Korea.
This year alone, over 200 fish farms were built in South Phyongan Province.
The province has a favourable geographical condition to build fish ponds as it is blessed with Taedong and Chongchon rivers. So, over 1,000 fish farms and ponds have been built in compounds of factories and enterprises and in rural areas.
Their total area is hundreds of hectares.
Fish farms in the province bred three million more fries than last year and supplied them to more than 1,500 units with fish farms.
South Hamgyong Province is pushing ahead with the project to build a fish farm of 30 hectares in Yonggwang county which is abundant in water and which has a favourable geographical condition.
Seven ponds of fries, a breeding pond of microbe, 23 ponds of fishes and an angling place will be built in the farm.
General Secretary Kim Jong Il, regarding fish culture as an important work to improve the living of people, pays deep attention to it.
Recently alone, he gave on-the-spot guidance to the Sinhung fish farm, Ra Hyo Jin and Cha Ju Hyon-managed fish farms.
He sent breeding fishes, fries, rolling stocks and feed necessary for the growth and breeding of fishes to the Sinhung fish farm.
The Korean people are directing efforts to fish culture in order to bring about a great turn in this work in the near future as intended by Kim Jong Il.
