Day 2 and this morning the weather seems a little more settled than the previous days. Today we travel down to Hazorea fish farm to select some koi.
Upon arrival we are greeted by some of the staff from the offices and after a quick chat its straight up to the fish department to view the koi.
On our way through the farm we pass some of the spare equipment kept for the mudponds they have. The Hazorea farm is the largest supplier of Goldfish,Sarassa and shubunkins in Israel along with many other varieties. Its fair to say its a pretty big set up they have.
Going up to the fish house we greet the breeders. Always good to be met by there smiley faces.
The Koi facility here is massive and this farm was the pioneer of indoor koi production. There is always something new in the production line and the breeders are keen to show them off.
The pictures really dont do it justice. All of these tanks are are alive with fish and at this time of the year they are at full capacity. Its a great sight to see that they are able to successfully keep and grow such a large density of fish in the tanks with almost zero casualties. With huge Biofilters the farm is able to circulate a collossal amount of water to generate excellent water conditions for the fish.
Straight to buisness we start by selecting some of the smaller fish first. These fish will be showcased in the grow on koi section of the webpage.
A superb selection of various Tanchos are just a small snippet of the quality we seleceted here.
Some of the koi we crave the most are the Yamato Nishiki and kikusui. The amazing skin quality and deep colouring makes these fish a real stand out koi in any pond.
The fish just keep on coming. We cannot beleive the amount of fish prepared for our visit.
A few hours and hundreds of fish later we decide reluctantly to walk away and start the larger fish.
The first of the bigger koi are these stunners sized between 11" to 13" and will all be priced at £125 each.
Now we move over for the larger Koi. These are all sized between 13" up to 17" they will be individually priced between £150 up to £250.
Saved the best till last . These koi will be individually priced and will not be found anywhere else in big numbers across any farm in Israel.
This concludes our visit we have had a very productive day and have secured some amazing koi. Tomorrow sees us selecting at Dag Noy
