A new species of goldfish bred
Scientists in the fish farming sector of the DPRK succeeded in breeding a new species of goldfish.
The goldfish crossbred with carp is called “Namgang-1”.
It grows 1.3 times faster than the native goldfish, with strong vitality.
It can be raised together with other species of fish, and its productivity per hectare is three times that of the native goldfish.
It has less fine bones and much flesh.
At present, the fish farming sector is making efforts to spread the new species of goldfish.
