Pyongyang, April 27 (KCNA) — The Nampho Fishery Station is one of leading fishing stations in the west coastal area of the DPRK.
In the spirit of self-development, the station has caught several hundreds more tons of fish than scheduled from early-March, doubling fisheries output of the peak-year level.
According to Kang Kyong Su, manager of the station, it greeted its 70th founding anniversary with a big haul some days ago.
At the beginning of its operation, the station had only some 20 wooden ships, vessels and sailboats, he said, adding:
But it has developed into a leading fishing station in the west coastal area of the country under the wise leadership of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.
It sailed out for deep-sea fishing for the first time and made a big stride in putting the detection of fishing grounds, fishing prediction and maritime control on a scientific and IT basis by introducing a number of sci-tech achievements.
In recent years, the station has built all-purpose fishing boats of “Tanphung”-class.
The station also has a modern fish-processing factory.
Now, the Nampho Fishery Station is playing an important role in supplying marine products to Pyongyang citizens.
