      Just got this from DF&S:

      I do apologize, our website will no be accessible after 02/18/19. However, our Live Aquaria website will remain open and active; which this item (DF&S koi food) is also on there.

      Yes, checking the ingredients for these two products:
      Mazuri Koi Pond Nuggets https://www.mazuri.com/mazuri/ccrz__...e=&cclcl=en_US
      Mazuri Koi Platinum Nuggets https://www.mazuri.com/mazuri/ccrz__...e=&cclcl=en_US
      Both have dehulled soybean meal, ground corn, and fish meal as the top 3 ingredients in that order. After that, the order of ingredients varies a little. The Platinum has protein not less than 36% versus 33%.

      I have looked at many Koi foods. Unfortunately they are loaded with GMO ingredients.
      Soy, Corn, and Canola oil are generally GMO. A few years ago they may have been healthy for our Koi. I have looked
      at the ingredients in Health Extension cat food. It is grain free and GMO free. It may be an alternative.

      There is no scientific evidence that GMO food is unsafe to consume, unless the consumer is an insect. It can be argued that GMO crops are potentially bad for the environment. One needs to boycott GMO for the right reason. Feeding koi GMO food will not hurt them
