Harvesting Wholesale Koi at our Farm

Harvesting wholesale koi out of our fish ponds is not an easy process. But over the years, we have developed a very good strategy to successfully grow, cull out and harvest our koi and butterfly koi from our ponds and move them to our shipping facilities to be further culled and sorted for orders.

seining wholesale koiThe koi are first “baited” into one corner of their pond. This is done by feeding the koi fish in a specific location. Our production crew then places a sein in the pond and captures the koi in a smaller area. Without seining the koi pond, the entire pond would have to be drained to harvest any koi.

The fish are now ready to be placed in buckets and loaded onto our koi hauling unit. This is a very critical step in the koi harvesting process, as we want to keep their stress level to a bare minimum.


Koi Ready for ShippingThe final step in the koi harvesting process is unloading the koi or butterfly koi into our holding tanks at our shipping facilities. Once the koi fish are unloaded into our holding tanks, they will be sorted by size and quality, checked for overall health and inspected for orders.

As you can see, when you purchase wholesale koi from Ozark Fisheries, you can rest easy knowing your koi have been raised and cared for by a great group of folks!
