Day 2 we start the day at Hazorea Biosekoi. Here we are hoping for some high quality grow on koi. Today we are hoping foe big things .
The relationship we have with this farm is very strong. Prior to our visit we have been in contact with the breeder to request some koi we are looking to purchase.
At this farm there is a continuous cycle of breeding koi. In this area of the building the first stages of the rearing takes place. With every tank containing various fry.
At this point the breeders keeps all varieties separate so they can monitor and maintain a good selection of varieties. Here are some koi fry which are only 2 weeks old.
Kept in this building are the brood stock. This farm has a very large selection of brood to enable them to do multiple spawnings of each variety in a season.
Entering the fish house. Here the fish start there journey. The koi enter this section at a rough size of half a inch. From here they are constantly monitored and fed high protein foods to promote there growth.
Each tank holds thousands of koi. At multiple stages the koi are graded and separated. A large percentage of the fish are kept and grown to the next sizes
Everytime we visit this farm it is just amazing to see the volume of koi produced here. With all the koi being produced and reared under cover the farm can monitor the health and the development of there koi.
Here we start pur picking. And secure some superb grow on koi and these little beauties measuring 10".
From here we moved across to select some extreemly high quality koi. In these fish as you can see we have managed to secure some very unusual varieties such as karashigoi and Beni kikokuryu.
Continuing the buying we also purchased some larger koi. A couple of stunning doitsu Ochiba were quickly caught and will be coming home with us.
Also managing to secure some karashigoi regular scaled Ochiba Shigure and some Gin Rin Soragoi.
The kujaku were no decision they sell them selves with there striking Orange and amazing scalation pattern.
Something completely out.of the ordinary a Tancho Kigoi. This is the first time we have had one of these. The breeders were a little reluctant to sell due to the rarity of this fish.
How about this amazing Hariwake. Really unique scales stunning koi.
Finishing off with a Doitsu Tancho concluded our purchasing at Hazorea Biosekoi
Just before we left the farm are eager to show us there latest product
We ventured across to there small research facility to view these Bristol Shubunkins. These fish are rarely seen now a days and Hazorea are starting to produce these fish in large numbers.
This concludes what has been a fantastic trip to Hazorea next up Koi Kin fish farm.
Following the success we have had at Hazorea our trip to Koi Kin fish farm will be equally as good.
Having already secured some sizes of Long Fin koi this will be a nice easy visit.
After our visit to Koi Kin we moved onto something different to koi to our Goldfish supplier.
