JAPAN KOI IMPORT
BIOSECURITY

Once the shipments arrive in the UK, they are fully quarantined for a minimum of eight weeks, which includes double heat ramping. This process is Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) recommended to fight diseases such as Koi Herpesvirus (KHV). After quarantine the koi are available for sale via our distribution centre in Needingworth.

We do not allow access to the quarantine facilities by anyone other than staff members. Some koi will be advertised for sale upon arrival, but usually we wait until the heat ramping process is complete and the fish enter our retail or holding facility before advertising them for sale. The quarantine facility is located in five separate units from the main holding, retail and shop areas.

Designing and constructing a koi pond is a precise science, hobbyists will benefit from guidance in the early stages of set up. Refrain from using internet forums as a method of diagnosing a problem, specialist Koi dealers such as ourselves have vast experience in managing health issues. Feel free to contact us if you’re concerned about your Koi health or have any further questions.
