Choose Koi Wholesale and you can be sure of swimmingly good service. A trade-only supplier, we don’t – and won’t – sell to the public.
With a raft of happy customers, our reputation is well-earned – and it’s vital we maintain your trust by only selling to trade.
Our story started 17 years ago, when we opened the doors to a koi carp retail outlet. After more than a decade and a half in the industry, we realised that the supply chain was lacking somewhat – and that became our inspiration to set up Koi Wholesale. We felt we could make a big difference – and so we set out to do just that.
Owned by Nottinghamshire-based Ricky Stoddart, Koi Wholesale has grown into a thriving koi carp business, which continues to serve clients UK-wide.
It’s all thanks to Ricky’s immense passion for the koi carp industry that the company is thriving. Working alongside his Dad, who also works at Koi Wholesale, he’s been a fish keeper from an early age, and involved in the family firm since aged 10. Now, many years later, he’s extremely proud of the company he’s worked hard to nurture.
The only wholesaler to quarantine its stock – using a special, four-week regime approved by Cefas – Koi Wholesale carries a host of high-quality Koi in one convenient place.
What’s more, our ever-growing expert team knows all there is to know about koi carp. In fact, what they don’t know about the rare breed and how to look after them really isn’t worth knowing. Go on, try them…
Say hello to our diverse and ever-growing team of Japanese koi carp specialists. With a passion for all things koi, our combined experience – of both keeping and selling koi – ensures our unrivalled knowledge of the vibrant koi carp serves our customers well.
Friendly and dedicated, our team has over 40 years in the industry, which means you can more than rest assured that you’ve come to the right place.
"Every time I visit it never disappoints and they have access to some great fish from breeders all across Japan. They are always on the end of the phone for me and over the years the relationship has become more one of friends, than of just a business relationship.”
"Over the years, Ricky has helped in so many ways, in sourcing and supplying me some excellent fish to suit my clients and my business needs, but also going the extra mile to quarantine fish for me. This in itself has given me a lot of confidence in the company and what they're prepared to deliver as a service. I'd highly recommend contacting Ricky, especially if you want to take your business to another level."
"Ricky’s service and products are very good. I’m really happy with my dealings with Koi Wholesale. The fish are very good quality. We sell a range of Koi livestock and we’ve been over to Japan with Ricky to get exactly what we wanted. We’ve done private client work with Ricky before, sourcing fish for individuals who are after particular types, It worked really well for us. He’s easy to deal with”
