History of Koi fish

H

istory of Koi or nishikigoi – the national fish of Japan.

Nishiki describes a colorful fish in Japanese language and Goiro Koi means carp. Exact translation of Nishikigoi can then be translated into a colorful carp.

This fish was thought to originate from Middle eastern regions, from a species of fish called Magoi or the common carp. Over a millenia ago these fish were traded as a food source, mainly exported to Western Europe, China and Japan.

The Koi fish were first bred in Japan in early 1820's in the town of Ojiya. Firstly they were bred for food, but occasionally these brown fish produced a red and blue mutations. Thorugh selective breeding, the red and white mutation was eventually perfected as it could be seen in the modern ornamental Koi from 1870's.

Many color varieties of this fish were bred from this single species, including a scaled fish known in germany as the Mirror.

What does a Koi fish symbolize?

T

he Japanese legend says that, if a Koi succeds in climbing the falls at a point called the Dragon gate on the Yellow River, it would be transformed into a dragon. Based on this legend it became a symbol of aspiration and advancement.

Generally the Japanese associate this fish with strength of purpose, because of its strength and determination for overcoming obstacles and ability to attain its higher goals.
