Pyongyang, March 18 (KCNA) -- The Nampho Eel Farm of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is breeding eels in an intensive and scientific way.
Scientists and technicians of the farm have found out a unique method to raise elvers and thus boosted their survival rate remarkably.
They have also developed a new kind of materials for improving water quality to suit the ecological character of eels and various kinds of fodder additive for their quick breeding.
They have opened up a bright perspective for their artificial spawning.
The farm, built in December Juche 91 (2002), is situated on the west coastal area of Nampho.
Covering more than 58,000 square meters, the farm has indoor breeding grounds (three buildings), a general operation room, a technical preparation room and open-air breeding ponds.
There are 79 ponds of different sizes and forms in the indoor breeding grounds. They are divided into ponds for elvers, mother eels and fattening, which are equipped with modern facilities including logs for water temperature and PH.
The general operation room is furnished with latest facilities so as to observe the ponds in three-dimensional way.
Manager of the farm Ri Jun Sik told KCNA that the eels produced by the farm in an industrial way are popular in foreign markets.
Many delegations from Asian and European countries including China, Denmark and France have visited the farm.
