Look At Those Monsters!

Spawning season is upon and us, and that means bringing all of our koi and butterfly koi brood stock out of the mud ponds and into our holding facilities. Each year, there are some brood stock that have grown too old to reliably produce eggs or sperm any longer. These gentle giants are sent to our shipping facility, and will eventually make their way to someone’s pond.
