hello, i have 2 ponds at home, one is about 1000+ gallons, and a small above ground pond, 500 gallons, my kois have spawned 2 times already, and im running out of room if i build another pond my parents are gonna kill me, my question is, do i need some kind of special license to sell some of my small koi to petshops ?, or if i cant sell them is there a place where i could go to and donate them maybe : | .

thanks guys

My first pond, my koi had alot of babies. I sold them to Feeders Supply, gave them to new pond owners, school ponds and any good homes I could find

Since you live in florida, follow this link for more information:


Basically, if you are a hoobyist, you dont need any liscences or permits. If your intent is to breed to sell , youll need a bunch..county occupational permit, city occupational permit, Florida aquaculture cert, Fl Fish and WIldlife Conservation Commission Permit, etc etc.

The best thing to do is to donate to friends, schools or clubs.
