History: Also known as nishikigoi, koi carp and koi fish, Koi (Cyprinus carpio) are a member of the carp family. There are several different theories surrounding the development of Koi as we know them today, and though dates and times vary with each, one thing they all agree upon is that Koi originated from a species of wild carp that is a primary food source throughout asia and the middle east.
Originally kept by rice farmers for a winter food store, some of the fish began to exhibit genetic mutations in the form of colors. First red, then white, then red and white together, and so on. This is thought to have been sometime during the 19th century. The farmers recognized that these fish were special, and so the colored fish were spared from the plate and were kept separate from the normal carp and allowed to breed.
The further development of Koi as we know them today was pioneered by the Japanese, and by 1915 a triple colored Koi was introduced in Tokyo, after which Koi keeping became very popular in Japan.
The development of the plastic bag in the 1950's allowed Koi to be shipped worldwide with high survival rates, which is due in part to their hardy carp ancestors. The popularity of Koi continued to spread worldwide, and over time the beautiful variety of colors we see today were developed.
Today's Koi Fish: Modern Koi fish come in a variety of colors, from solid yellow to tri-color patterns. There are over a dozen officially recognized Koi color combinations, and the older a Koi is, the more prominent its color pattern will become. Traditionally, Koi range in size from 2.5" to 36" but given the proper environment, can grow even larger.
Koi were originally very expensive, with one fish being equivalent to the price of a small car. They were primarily kept by members of high society in formal garden ponds, but today anyone can purchase an entire case of them.
Our Premium Koi are of the highest quality and are health certified, so you can rest easy knowing your fish are coming from a clean source.

We had some very large fish shipped to us. Unfortunately they were not packaged correctly and some of them arrived dead due to lack of water. The ones that survived are great but we were very disappointed in the fact that some did not survive

The fish were in great condition upon arrival and the service was awesome. I had some scheduling challenges that week and The Pond Hub worked with me to change shipping dates and destination
