Mark Anderson

Japan Koi Import opened its doors for business in 2017. Mark Anderson the owner of JKI has had experience of running a successful business, and as a farmer by trade, has been a world class award winning Alpaca breeder. Following the success of his former business he decided to embark on a new business and branch out into importing and selling high quality koi.

His dream and passion is to create a new revolutionary quarantine and holding facility at his premises in Needingworth, St Ives, Cambridgeshire that will benefit wholesalers, dealers and hobbyists throughout the UK.


Our state-of-the-art quarantine and holding unit contains one 22,000 litre pond, two 18,000 litre ponds; two 10,000 litre ponds, eight 6,000 litre ponds and twenty 1,000 litre ponds. All these are individually filtered and housed within our site with over a 2,000 square metres under cover buildings. The buildings are all heated, allowing the heat ramping process to take place on all new arrivals.

Once the shipments arrive in the UK they are then fully quarantined for a six, nine week period (includes a 3 heat ramp cycle). After quarantine the koi are available for sale via our distribution centre.

The sheer numbers of koi that are supplied by the breeders and shipped to the facility allow the koi to be sold at conceal prices to customers, even after the quarantine period. This unique arrangement benefits all our customers in the UK.

If you have purchased a koi through us then once the quarantine period is over koi are available for collection, or they can be delivered throughout the UK via overnight delivery.
