After a busy week trying to get prepared for the incoming shipment of koi, today was the day. Its begins with a nice early morning drive to the airport in the fog!
Shortly after arriving the truck containing all the koi we have purchased pulls up. All 150 boxes fill the truck completetly.
We quickly unloaded the truck and filled up all 3 vans with the boxes ready for the drive back to our facility.
Once the vans pulled up stage one of our operation begins. It was all hands a deck as we unloaded all 150 boxes by hand one at a time. With each box weighing in excess of 25kg its as well we had all had our wheatabix.
All the boxes were stacked in a order to determine which pond they were to be released in . From here each bag is removed from the box and carried into our facility to start the acclimatisation process.
4 Hours later all the koi have been released in the water and will now start our strict quarantine procedure. In around 7 days we will start to lift some koi up and start listing for presale. Stay tuned for more updates on when the koi will be available.
