Start off with going to a bookstore or a library and looking up what they have on Koi Breeding..there is a book out with that title that you could look up on Amazon.com...research...then seek out a koi farm. IMHO.

I think i'll do some amazon looking. I found the breeding and bloodeling section here, so that has been some good reading. I would like to see some start to finish pictures of the trigger method. Would be very interesting to see.

Is this the book that you're recommending?

http://www.amazon.com/Koi-Breeding-Shmuel-Rothbard/dp/0793802164/sr=8-2/qid=1172433145/ref=sr_1_2/102-5594474-3921730?ie=UTF8&s=books

If not, could you please provide the author or ISBN? Does the book give specific details in relation to the genetics? Or color combinations?

Or is it more generalized information?

It's by Samuel Rothbard (but he spells it funny)

You won;t find the word "koi" in this book, but it is written in simple English and for Third World farmers.

Unlike Rothbard's book which is full of jargon and complicated apparatus, this book is simple, almost jargon free and includes methodologies anybody can cookbook thier way through.

Jhingrin and Pullin. A Hatchery Manual from Common, Chinese and Major Indian Carps. ICLARM. The Philippines.

It is paperback, inexpensive, and everything in it can be repeated anywhere you have water and electricity. I find the techniques in the book useful, simple and inexpensive to implement and they work.
