A Brief History of Koi
Koi, or Nishikigoi (Cyprinus carpio), are descendants of the common carp. In nature they are brown, but through selective breeding by the Japanese, numerous colours and patterns were developed. In the 17th century Chinese rice farmers began keeping carp in their rice paddies. This practice found its way to Japan.
