KOI

Koi , or Nishikigoi, are ornamental varieties of domesticated common Carp (Cyprinus carpio) that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens. Koi were originally used as a source of food by rice farmers in China. However, as the fish made their way to Japan, the Japanese soon admired the amazing colors of koi fish. They started breeding different varieties and spectacular colors and patterns were achieved. The koi fish hobby was born.   

Koi varieties are distinguished by coloration, patterning and scalation.

Colors are primarily white, black, red, yellow, blue and cream.

The most popular category of Koi is the Gosanke, which is made up of the Kohaku, Taisho Sanshoku, and Showa Sanshoku varieties.
