Over the last 12 months, we’ve worked closely with our associates in Japan to enable us to trial shipments through the hottest months of the year. The new box we developed resulted in some very successful test shipments, so we asked the breeders at NND for a very special shipment.
We asked for this season’s Tosai!
After some discussion, it was decided that we would be allocated five mud ponds – and after each selection we would have koi placed into the ponds to get the best possible growth prior to shipping.
The ponds were harvested 10 days before the shipment. After, the koi would be placed ...
On Flash Back Friday, we will be looking back at our history, trips to Japan and some memorable koi that we have supplied.
Due to our relationships, knowledge and contacts in Japan, we can offer way more than just the standard stock fish, we can open up doors to some very special koi indeed. One such door was Sakai Fish Farm which, led us to this stunning Kohaku which we sourced as nisai for a UK dealer.
The video shows the Koi a year later in 2016 as sansai and she still resides at the farm today now close to 80cm.
