About Koi Fish
Koi fish are a colourful, ornamental versions of the common carp. Though carp domestication is believed to have begun in China as far back as the 4th century, modern Japanese koi are believed to date back to early 19th-century Japan where wild, colorful carp were caught, kept, and bred by rice farmers. There are now dozens of different color varieties of koi.
Koi fish have been loved in Japan and they have been characterized by strength and success for a very long time. Koi fish stands for basically anything that is good; luck, prosperity, vitality, and longevity and is very closely associated with the Japanese cultural identity. However, koi first appeared in China about 2,500 years ago and came to Japan only many centuries later.
