Pyongyang, July 15 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il provided field guidance to the newly-built aquiculture ground and oyster farm at the Amnokgang Fishery Station.

The first leg of his guidance was the newly-built aquiculture ground.

He went round various places of the aquiculture ground to acquaint himself in detail with its construction and fish keeping.

Looking at each pond teeming with well-fed fishes including swellfish and flatfish, he expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the employees of the fishery station are breeding tasty and highly nutritious fishes in a big way after building a large capacity modern aquiculture ground on the principle of profitability. He highly appreciated the feats performed by them.

He set forth tasks to be fulfilled by the station to manage and operate the aquiculture ground.

He said that in order to boost the fish production and keep it going at a high rate at the aquiculture ground equipped with modern facilities, it is necessary to widely introduce advanced scientific aquiculture methods and, at the same time, further raise the level of science and technology of the employees.

He called on all the units along the seashores to positively increase the fish production in various ways so as to supply fresh fishes to the people all the year round.

The next leg of his guidance was the newly-built oyster farm.

Koreans have widely used oyster for their diet from olden times as it is very good for people's health and very tasty and rich in nutrition, he said, underscoring the need to continue exerting great efforts for oyster cultivation which makes it possible to steadily boost productivity by use of natural feed.

Underlining the need to decisively put oyster cultivation on a scientific and modern basis, he specified orientation and ways to do so.

He was accompanied by Kim Phyong Hae, chief secretary of the North Phyongan Provincial Committee of the WPK, Jang Song Thaek, vice-chairman of the NDC of the DPRK and department director of the WPK Central Committee, Department Directors Kim Kyong Hui and Thae Jong Su and First Vice Department Director of the C.C., the WPK Ri Jae Il.
