Mitsunori: Today, Mr. Omiya came to shoot our Nishikigoi for another Live Koi online event called “Sumi Monogatari (sumi story).” Our extremely interesting Showa will be exhibited at the event, so please take a look at it. Omoya: Furthermore, Hiroshi from Dainichi Koi Farm shows his competitive spirit by entering attractive Showa. There will be more interesting Nishikigoi at the event. Sumi Monogatari only introduces sumi mono. If you love or are interested in sumi mono, please visit the website. Mitsunori: We have carefully selected Nishikigoi that suit best to Sumi Monogatari. Hidemasa: Are they attractive? Mitsunori: Of course, they are attractive! Hidemasa: Attractive it is! We cannot wait for the event to start. Mitsunori: Hiroshi~, you should watch this. Omiya: Will he? Hahaha I would also like other breeders to watch the event. Mitsunori: Yes, those Nishikigoi will blow their mind as well. Hidemasa: I see. I’m looking forward to the event. Mitsunori, Omiya: We would appreciate it if you visit and see the Nishikigoi at Sumi Monogatari online event. Thank you.
Hi, it is July 20th. We are practicing the first culling of Kohaku today. Hidemasa: Mitsunori, what koi are their parents? Mitsunori: The mother is Kagura-blooded female from Kachi-san’s farm, and the father is Sensuke-blooded male from Iizuka-san’s farm. Hidemasa: Like this, we are culling Kohaku. Oh, does it get in today’s top 10? Mitsunori: Yes. We got so many of this rank of Kohaku. Hidemasa: It’s good to hear.
We are picking out only good ones and put them back in a pond. Mitsunori: I have to throw out this one. Hidemasa: Aren’t you being a little strict? Mitsunori: Well, I don’t want this one either. Hidemasa: Do you eliminate it as well…?
As you can see, we are continuously working on culling at the small cabana in summer heat.
Mitsunori: Today, we were shooting Nishikigoi movie clips for the auction event called Live Koi. This is Mr. Omiya, and he came to shoot our Nishikigoi. Omiya: Hi, everyone. We prepared Isa’s excellent koi for this event, please keep that in your mind.
We have just finished shooting 8 outstanding koi we picked. Most of them are female, but one is unknown. We think it will turn out to be female though. Anyway, they are high quality, so please check out the event and enjoy appreciating them. Hidemasa: We reported the Live Koi shooting. Thank you for watching.
Mitsunori: Today, we would like to introduce our main fry ponds in Muikaichi. The total area of these ponds sizes about 10,909 square meter including the new ponds added this year.
We released about 700,000 fries in these ponds.
Additionally, we have 2 other places holding fry ponds.
Overall, we could release about 2,000,000 fries this year.
We are going to start the first culling soon.
It might be difficult to see, but these ponds are covered with silk-thread nets called tengusu to protect the fries from predators.
We’ ll try to keep up the good work!
