So much is made of the autumn harvest of koi, but we often forget that at many other times of the year the Japanese koi industry is just as busy. In this highly enjoyable and informative programme, we take an in-depth look at Niigata in the springtime, when the finest koi breeders in the world prepare for another busy season of producing koi.
Parent koi, Japanese filtration systems, choosing yearlings, packing and shipping koi – all this and much, much more is covered here. Niigata is the undoubted home of koi and during this excellent programme you are transported to the very heart of the Japanese koi industry, to meet the men who breed the magnificent Nishikigoi we all adore.
