Another lovely morning in Israel. Today we visit Gan Shmuel to do our koi hand picking. This farm has quite alot of koi for us to buy. Lior from Gan Shmuel has personally selected some koi specially for us.
On arrival we were greeted by the boss.
Lior had pulled all the stops out for our visit the koi selection available were really high quality. The colours of the Kohaku especially strong along with great body shape.
We also had spme amazing Long Fin Koi to choose from. These fish hd been prepared from a batch of koi being grown for next year. This is a real privilege and without the strong working relationship with the farm this would of never happened.
After a quite a few hours we finalised our koi buying we have purchased some really high quality koi. Before we left the farm we were given a tour through there breeding facilities.
As the farm had only just finished the spawning we got the oppotunity to see some larvae for future growing. Here there is some Shusui and Goromo still waiting to hatch with a small percentage already hatched.
Todays trip has been a huge success and everything the farm had done is beyond our expectation. Tomorrow is out final day which takes us to the best fancy goldfish supplier in Israel. Here we will get the oppotunity to hand select through there highest quality Orandas and Ryukin
