Calling on the Pioneers Who Created the History of “Gold Seas”

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un gave field guidance at the fishing stations in the east coastal area in November Juche 107(2018).

First he inspected the May 27 Fishery Station.

Saying that he was receiving every day a report on fish catching by the fishing stations in the east coastal area in the intensive winter fishing campaign, and that he came to meet the fishermen to encourage them as he had been greatly pleased on receiving the report that they had caught a large amount of fish in a short span of time, he personally got aboard Hwanggumhae-014, and congratulated its captain and fishermen who had returned with a big fish haul.

Expressing great satisfaction at the sight of the unloading of fresh fish from vessel and the fish streaming out to an outdoor area, he called the fishermen and other employees, saying that he wanted to have a photo taken with them against this wonderful scenery.

Seeing the fish blocks that filled the freezing storehouse, he said they looked like a “treasure mountain” and “gold ingots” and the storehouse had almost been filled with fish in a few days of the intensive fishing campaign. He said that if the fish were caught as it was now, the storehouse would not be large enough to store the caught fish, and underscored the need to increase the quick-freezing capacity 2-3 times on an annual basis.

He then inspected the August 25 Fishery Station.

This fishery station is the birthplace of Tanphung fishing vessels and of the history of “gold seas.”

This station was the one where the Party had kindled the first flames of a campaign for making a breakthrough on the fishing front when the country’s fishing sector fell into stagnation, and since the first departure of Tanphung fishing vessels here the fierce flames of a new mass-based innovation campaign flared up in the fishing sector of the People’s Army and the history of “gold seas” began.

Looking round the freezing storehouses, he expressed great satisfaction over the fact that each of them was filled with thousands of tons of fish.

He expressed his expectation and conviction that the officials and other employees of the station would continue to follow the course of making the history of “gold seas” as befits the pioneer, model unit, that kindled a new torch in fish catching, before having a photo taken with them.

The last leg of his tour was the January 8 Fishery Station.

The station was set up to supply fish on a regular basis to the children in all baby homes, orphanages, students of primary and secondary schools for orphans and the elderly of the old people’s homes across the country.

Noting that when the January 8 Fishing Station was set up he gave a task to supply 300g of fish every day to every child in all baby homes and orphanages, every student of primary and secondary schools for orphans and the elderly of the old people’s homes across the country, he said it should increase the daily supply to 400g by waging a vigorous struggle.

Saying that he gave top priority to the station, he expressed his expectation and conviction that the station’s officials and other fishermen would work a new miracle and innovation, standing in the vanguard of the country with a high sense of dignity and pride in carrying out the honourable task.

Kim Jong Un’s on-site guidance at the fishing stations in the east coastal area encouraged their officials and other employees to lead the fishery sector of the country by continuing to write brilliant chapters in the history of “gold seas.”
