Well nice early start to kick off our trip. It’s 5am and we are on route to Madankoi to do our pre visit. This visit will give us a first look at the fish prepared by the breeders for us to hand select.
The entrance into Madankoi takes us straight in to the farms packing house this is where all koi are prepared and packed for shipping.
Here there is in excess of 200 tanks fully stocked with various sizes and types of fish. As well as breeding koi Madan also producers excellent Goldfish varieties.
As you can see having a quick pre view there is lots of koi for us to hand select and the breeders have been very busy. Here is one of the many tanks we will get to hand select from when we come back here to start our buying .
Next visit Gan Shmuel
Next it’s off to Ganshmuel. Here we are expecting to see some more unusual varieties along with the excellent Long Fin Koi we had last year.
Although Ganshmuel is reasonably close to Madankoi we find that the breeders always try to offer something a little bit different. We quite often find some of the more unusual varieties here and of course amazing high quality long fin koi.
Looking around as with Madan Ganshmuel have pulled out all the stops there is a vast amount of koi to choose from and there is going to be some difficult decisions to be made on our selecting.
