The Koi available have been selected from the following breeders; Takahashi, Ofuchi, Sakai, Marudo, Kawakami, Miyatora, Hiroi, Yamazaki and Seitero. These fish have not been previously displayed in our retail area and will be priced between £35 and £125. All Koi will be photographed and measured and any Koi purchased will be kept in our indoor growing facility at 24oC until Easter 2018 then cooled and made available for collection.
