Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: Why are there so many farms raising the slippery loach fish?

The mudfish is a key income source for many, but the state promotes such aquaculture even in ill-suited environments

“Ask a North Korean” is an NK News series featuring interviews with and columns by North Korean defectors, most of whom left the DPRK within the last few years.

Readers may submit their questions for defectors by emailing [email protected] and including their first name and city of residence.
