About Us

About Koi Hut and the Team

Koi Hut opened in 2016 and has since become well respected in the local fish keeping community. We boast a wealth of knowledge in keeping Koi and collectively have at least ninety years of experience in fish keeping to draw on.

A dedicated Koi Health Specialist is available on request and, for a nominal charge, will visit your pond to offer advice and provide the most up to date treatments for your fish and their habitat.

We have a well stocked dry goods shop and two fish rooms housing twenty seven holding tanks. In addition to this, we also have quarantine facilities housed separately from those of the main shop. You can follow the Koi Hut through our Facebook page.

We also offer a bespoke pond building service, tailored to your own specifications. Our in-house pond build expert, Steve, will be happy to give you a quote. See our Pond Builds page for more information.

The Koi Hut is located at the bottom end of New Lane, Havant, and is situated alongside the Railway Gates leading into Havant Town. The town centre is a 10 minute walk away and is 5 minutes from Havant town Station. Our main entrance is to the left of aforementioned Railway Gates.

Mark Grist

Manager and Koi enthusiast

I have always been fascinated with fish keeping and started my hobby keeping Sticklebacks in an old butler sink in the garden. My first pond was for goldfish but once I discovered Koi and introduced them to my pond, I very soon discovered how inadequate a goldfish pond is for these jewels in the garden. My pond is a modest 4000 gallons and I have 26 Koi and one remaining goldfish. As a Koi enthusiast I treat all the fish in the shop as I would expect to keep my own, the fish come first. I am more than happy to provide any advice to visitors of the shop in order to help them avoid the same mistakes that I have made in the past.
