A Perfect Farm


A catfish farm is in the suburbs of Pyongyang, the capital of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

The farm is producing delicious and highly nutritious catfish every year, making a contribution to improving the people’s diet.

It is warmly associated with the devoted efforts made by the respected supreme leader Kim Jong Un to improve the people’s diet.


True to the noble intention of the great leader Kim Jong Il who was concerned to provide the people with more fish, Kim Jong Un visited the farm in December Juche 103 (2014) for normalization of the catfish production.

He learned about production and stressed that it is an important task of the farm to send catfish on a regular basis.

And he presented the tasks to put the catfish farming on a scientific and intensive basis and further modernize the farm and solved all problems arising in carrying them out.

In October Juche 104 (2015) he called at the farm again, which was turned into a model farm in fish farming.

He beamed all over his face as he was so happy with the smart farm which has been wonderfully changed beyond recognition, another wealth to be conducive to the improvement of the people’s diet.

He looked round different places of the farm to learn in detail about the catfish production and the modernization of the farm.

He expressed satisfaction over the fact that the output of catfish doubled without increasing the area of fishponds, manpower and volume of water. Seeing the catfish teeming in the outdoor ponds, he said with greatest delight that there are more fish than water and it is a marvelous scene.


Looking at the heaps of the frozen catfish in every cold storage, he said the catfish should be supplied to the people all the year round.

Ju Ka Ram, Head of a Department of the Pyongyang Catfish Farm, says: “Looking round the farm, Kim Jong Un said with great pleasure that he specially likes the modernization realized by its technical force and domestic technology and equipment.

He also said he is very pleased to go round the farm. And he expressed great satisfaction, saying it is a perfect farm.”

That day, Kim Jong Un put forward the tasks facing the farm, including the issues on carrying out the mission of the dissemination base of science and technology on catfish farming.

Keeping his noble outlook on the people deep in their hearts, the officials and employees of the farm are exerting themselves to increase the catfish output and put the fish farming on a highly scientific, intensive and industrial footing.
