With the New koi arriving soon after our very successful buying trip we have just had in Israel, the hard work has begun. This year we have increased our facility with an extra 4500 gallons to accomodate our increased purchase. The extra room is going to enable us to carry a greater fish stock than in previous years.
This is the first fish house we have where we house some of the new koi which will be arriving soon . This building has 17 tanks in with an overall water capacity of 25'000 gallons or 112'500 litres. In here we mainly display koi 12" and above, these ponds will also hold some of our High Quality Jumbo koi.
The second fish house we have is the biggest on the site. This building consists of 11 tanks with 1 display pond and a combined total of 40'000 gallons or 180'000 litres.
Our 3rd fish house in which we have increased the water capacity now holds 25,000 gallons or 112,500 litres. This gives us a combined total of 90'000 gallons or 405,000 litres. This building is mainly used as our quarantine facility through the summer months. In the height of the pond season when we are importing smaller fish between 4 and 8 inches weekly they go through our strict quarantine procedure before being moved to either of the fish houses.
Along with the 3 fishhouses we also have a large mud pond which we regularly use for storing fish. This enables us to keep high volumes of high quality koi all year round and we frequently bring new koi forward for sale. As well as using this pond as storage, when our stock numbers decrease we house a number of high grade smaller koi in the pond too. By the end of the season these koi are quite often around 9-11inches in size and can normally been seen around the December months for sale. Below is an example of the koi which we grew on and sold this year.
All that's left to do now is collect the fish and spend the day getting them all settled into the new enviroments. Fish will be available for reservations shortly so keep checking our blog pages for the next update.
