Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, gave field guidance at the August 25 Fishery Station of the Korean People's Army and the newly-built Thongchon Fish-processing Station.
The first leg of his inspection tour was the August 25 Fishery Station, a beloved station which he always affectionately calls the maker of history of “gold sea” and home of fishing vessel Tanphung.
After visiting the newly-built fish-processing shop, he made the rounds of the already existing fish-processing shop and cold storage chambers.
He highly praised the officials and fishermen of the fishery station and their families who were working hard to make big fish hauls without fail this year, too.
He earnestly requested the officials to provide every convenience for fishermen's everyday life and pay close attention to the living of their families, instead of being obsessed with the production results alone.
As he looked round the hall dedicated to education with revolutionary relics at the fishery station, he recollected with deep emotion the path of development that the station has covered for the past six years by upholding the banner of radical turn in fishery under the guidance of the Party.
He said it is necessary to conduct efficient education by means of the hall comprehensively showing the history of development of the station, which has been developed into a core unit in implementing the Party's fishery policy, so as to make all its fishermen and other employees steadily preserve their honour of being pacesetters and shock brigade who defend the WPK with bigger fish hauls as befit the proud heroes who wrote the first page of the history of “gold sea”.
He saw an art performance given by the artistic group of the fishery station.
Expressing gratitude to the performers for their very impressive performance that is perfect in ideological and artistic value, he personally invited them to Pyongyang at the end of this year.
The next leg of his tour was the Thongchon Fish-processing Station.
KPA service personnel who turned out in the drive for carrying out the instructions of the Supreme Leader completed the fish-processing station with a daily quick-freezing capacity of hundreds of tons and a cold-storing capacity of thousands of tons.
He was satisfied to see fishes being poured into the freezing and processing shops by unloading equipment and conveyor.
As he saw the freezing and processing shops bristling with machines and equipment, he said they were full of fishes and machines and he felt as if he was seeing a sea of fishes and a sea of machines. And he acquainted himself with every process of fish processing and equipment operation.
Seeing the cold storage chambers jam-packed with fishes with great joy, he said that there is nothing more encouraging and pleasant than the continuation of the history of “gold sea” for us at the time when we struggle for making a breakthrough in improving the people's living standards. We have had a good crop this year and we will get big fish hauls, too, he added.
Saying that there is nothing to spare or hesitate to do for service personnel's dietary life, he called on everyone to devote wisdom and passion in one mind to the improvement of their standard of living by doing more possible things and turning the impossible into the possible.
He stressed the need for the processing station built with much effort to make a tangible contribution to the improvement of their dietary life.
