Ricky Stoddart harvesting large Kohaku at NND Champion Mud Pond

NND Champion Mud Pond Harvest – A Great Honour

Last month I was honoured to be invited to harvest the NND champion mud pond in Yomogihira for the second time. The pond contained 32 very high quality yonsai and gosai. When I harvested this pond two years ago I was the first person other than Makoto Tanaka and Fujio Oomo to be allowed to lift the fish. Once again they trusted me to do the business with these exceptional koi!

I am a koi fanatic and currently the managing director of Koi Wholesale Limited. I have been actively involved in the koi industry since 2001 and have been visiting Japan since 2002. Having gained a lot of experience, I've also been lucky enough to be able to learn from some of Japan's top breeders. As a result, I like to share my knowledge to help koi keepers and dealers get a better understanding of Nishikigoi.
