Koi Predators

Koi Predators

Koi and butterfly koi have the same predators as goldfish. You name it, and it probably has an appetite for koi fish.

Birds are the largest predator of koi and butterfly koi at our farm, including egrets, great blue herons, ducks, double-crested cormorants and ring-billed gulls. The great blue heron is the most destructive of all these birds, eating whole ponds of koi in a matter of days.

Other animals that make a meal out of koi are mink, otters, turtles, snakes and frogs. Mink are detrimental to koi, eating entire bodies and only leaving the heads behind.
