What draws attention in the production and management at the fishery station for supplying feed to the Central Zoo in Chongjin is that it constantly focusses on firing technicians and skilled workers with the zeal for competition and encouraging them to cultivate teamwork and open-mindedness of always learning from anyone.
The station makes it a rule to regularly reexamine the technical knowledge and skills of captains, chief engineers and skilled workers and review and evaluate their work. It also frequently organizes a competition according to occupations to make all fishermen capable of doing their jobs promptly and correctly under any conditions and circumstances.
In particular, it assigns tasks to technicians and skilled workers in such a way as to make them brainstorm technical innovation plans and carry them out by concerted efforts, thereby imbuing them with the heightened awareness that teamwork is essential for talents.
Therefore, the employees show a growing enthusiasm for improving their skills and entering the ranks of talents of the station and competitively come up with new ideas and technical innovation plans and implement them.
The station established a command system based on long-distance radio communications and mechanized the removal of rust from hulls to make it possible to engage only one worker to do the labour-consuming work in a short span of time. Such achievements of the station are attributable to the creation of its own powerful force of talents.
Meanwhile, the station steadily improves its technical level by keeping in touch with scientific research institutions, positively shares its good experience with other units in the fishery sector and introduces scientific fishing methods.
As a result, it has carried out its national economic plan every year.
It exceeded the peak year level in fishing in 2021, the first year in the implementation of the five-year plan for national economic development.
It finishes the repair and maintenance of ships by February each year to ensure the out fishing days without fail and channels efforts into recycling and producing necessary parts, while remodelling fishing vessels.
It also established a process for producing different kinds of processed marine products with by-products and has increased their variety and improved their quality to supply people with tasty and nutritious processed foods.
The employees of the station say they feel pride in their job and find it rewarding as they watch on TV those people smiling happily while seeing animals making sweet gestures after eating fishes they sent.
The fishery station, a Twice Honoured Three-Revolution Red Flag unit and model in the fishery sector, has been chosen as one of the top ten enterprises this year.
