      24th Niigata Breeders Koi Auction

      Spring of 2019 is quickly approaching and with it some exciting news! After having the honor of representing the USA and judging the 50th All Japan Koi Show I was asked one question over and over again..... Why don't we see koi of this quality in the USA? And the simple answer is most koi of this quality stay in Japan to be eligible to compete in the most pristine koi show in the world. Japan does not allow koi to be imported into its country....only exported. So if the fish leaves Japan it would become ineligibly to enter the All Japan Koi Show.

      Here comes the exciting news! How would you like to own and compete in a world class koi show? You need the right fish right?!

      Its no secrete that many of the koi competing in the All Japan Koi Show were acquired in koi auctions. The 24th Niigata Breeders auction is an opportunity to acquire such quality and it would be my honor to represent you in the bidding process. I'll share a link to where you can view the koi up for grabs. If you are interested on how this works please feel free to call. All bids must be entered to Koi Enteprise by 2/27/19 3:00pm PST

      Depends on the fish. If you contact us with interested fish I can answer that question. Many of the koi listed have a comment below the fish regarding possible koi show entry
