Japanese Koi Carp in Hampshire
All of our fish imported from Japanese breeders arrive in England and are processed through the Heathrow Animal Reception Centre. These fish are sealed in heavy duty plastic bags which have been inflated with oxygen and then placed into standard size boxes. Fish have usually been in these bags for about 30 Hours on arrival, so we do not waste any time in getting them into our shop. On arrival all the fish are checked and acclimated to ensure the pH and water temperatures do not stress them further. After a settling in period of about two weeks, during which time they are well fed and continuously checked, we will start the process of heat ramping. Only when we are fully satisfied that they are all fit to be sold to the public do we release them for sale.
