Select Nishikigoi International was founded by Deron Simons in 2008 with the sole intention of supplying high class Koi with a genuine pedigree. There are thousands of outlets in the UK that sell Koi but the majority of these are entry level Koi. Each year we travel to Japan more times than any other UK dealer and these frequent visits enable us to be there when only certain Koi become available.
In just four years we have amassed a huge number prizes at Koi Shows in the UK and also at the All Japan Koi Show and have exported Koi to twelve different countries worldwide, we are no ordinary local dealer.
Once you have developed the 'Koi eye' it can be very frustrating to try and improve your knowledge and understanding. This is where Select Nishikigoi can take you to the next level and beyond! Being members of the Shinkokai (The Japanese Breeders and Dealers Association) we are experienced in every aspect of Koi, from Judging at the All Japan Koi Show, raising Tategoi to Show level and Genuine quality Koi selection. We have over 25 years of Nishikigoi experience and it is this factor that enables us to bring the true top level Koi to our shores.
This experience has been put into the design of the largest new Professional Koi facility in the UK. We are currently constructing a totally Japanese style Koi farm.
Select Nishikigoi International will boast 160,000 gallons Japanese Style of water in total. The main Fish House for new arrivals and for quarantining Koi will hold approximately 15,000 gallons in 10 ponds.
In addition we will have six indoor growing ponds all filtered with drum filters and our patented 'Fluid Shower' system, in total there will be around 145,000 gallons in these ponds.
For those yet to experience a Japanese Koi Farm, this will undoubtedly be the next best thing! Infact we are confident it will be 'as good as'!
Having visited Japan numerous times over the last decade, Select Nishikigoi International has a portfolio of breeders that not only have Koi that are stunning in Japan, but Koi that are also suitable for our British waters . Many Koi that may be very beautiful in Japan, cannot always adapt to water in the UK, it is the knowledge gained over many years that provides us with the ability to make these judgements. It is this understanding that created the opportunity for Select Nishikigoi International to be offered the Sole UK Agency for Koi No Yohei, probably the Farm that will make the largest impact on the Nishikigoi world in the next few years with their F3 New Hybrid Koi now ready to make a massive impact at Koi Shows all over the World.
Buying quality Nishikigoi is not about today, it is about tomorrow. To understand the future in Nishikigoi, you must have an understanding of the past and this only comes from experience. In your search for outstanding Koi, Select Nishikigoi International can be your portal into the world of truly high class Japanese Nishikigoi.
