The start of Day 2 on our trip takes us to view a new farm producing small high grade koi. This farm is concentrating on small koi it is a huge indoor facility with huge potential
Here you can see how this farm uses all of its available space. Here are some pictures just to show the amount of koi reared in the tanks .
We have been blown away by the number of high grade small koi we have seen and I’m sure you will soon see some of these koi in our facility this year.
Next sees the hand selecting at Gan Shmuel. Always a pleasure seeing what this farm has to offer.
Sure enough Gan Shmuel had pulled out all the stops. Having done our pre visit we were aware of the koi that they had but at second viewing there are some amazing koi.
Here is some of the most unusual koi. These fish had been requested by love aquatics back in June and the staff at Gan Shmuel have successfully managed to produce the fish.
As seen above is a very rare Tancho Goshiki
At Gan Shmuel we also hand select the very best grade Long Fin Koi. As seen below the varieties we have purchased are Predominantly Utsuri type.
The quality of koi at Gan Shmuel is simply amazing. One of the most exciting fish to come from today is the small Doitsu metallic mix . Here is a mix of Yamato nishiki ,kikusui ,kujaku and kikokuryu.
A very successful trip to Gan Shmuel and all the staff have done a fantastic job with all the koi they have prepared.
