Koi food that helps grow Koi big, beautiful, and healthy

RAW WHEAT GERM

The naturally occurring Vitamin E contained in raw wheat germ is also used in health foods as germ oil. This Vitamin E enhances the immunity of the Koi and activates metabolism to improve luster and brighten the white skin.
The “raw wheat germ” used by Mr. Kodama contains about 35 times more natural Vitamin E than the commonly used “defatted wheat germ”.

FRESH FISHMEAL

Raw materials for fishmeal such as sardines and saury, gain a higher palatability, digestibility and safety, the fresher they are. The longer it takes to process these fish, the more likely they will oxidize and spoil, resulting in a higher histamine content, which in turn causes numerous health problems. Mr. Kodama’s food has only 1/10th the histamine content of commonly used prime grade fishmeal.

Grow Koi with vivid and beautiful colors

HIGH QUALITY SPIRULINA

Spirulina is a high-protein, digestible superfood. The carotenoids contained in spirulina have the effect of brightening the red color of Koi. The carotenoid content varies greatly depending on the place of origin and the season, but in general, the higher the content, the better the quality of spirulina. The carotenoid concentration of Mr. Kodama is about 2 times higher than the concentration of commonly used spirulina carotenoids.

A happy lifestyle through Koi

Mamoru Kodama began farming freshwater fish in 1967. During his frequent visits to Niigata, Japan known well as the hometown of Japanese Koi, he began to specialize in beautiful Nishikigoi (Japanese Koi). Said to be “living jewels”, he created a deep desire to grow more beautiful Japanese Koi, and eventually came up with the goal to receive a winning grade at the renowned All Japan Nishikigoi Show. The condition for growing beautiful Koi is to “make a good pond and to feed them well”. However there was no food of satisfactory quality in the market at that time. So he decided to make it himself.

However, making Koi food has never been an easy task. He started research on making Koi food through the combination of various raw materials with “pupa” or chrysalis as the main raw material, which was said to be ideal for growing Koi in Niigata. It took several years just to find the right ingredients to match. He created recipes, tested feeding, and reviewed the results. There was much trial and error. For example, he mixed in “turmeric” because of its good health properties, however the Koi would not eat it at all. He found that Koi do not like bitterness. He also tried “raw sardines”, but unfortunately it ended up rotting the water, smelling terrible, and eventually causing the Koi to lose their appetite. After many mistakes, he found out that Koi actually have a “taste and smell”. The Koi preferred a soft, sinking food, and a sweetness that increased their appetite. Therefore, he developed a food that was made by adding boiled “wheat, sweet potato, and honey” to the “raw pupa”. After much refinement, his final version mix was given to a Koi which ended up winning grand champion at the All Japan Nishikigoi Show. As a result of the repeated improvements over the years, the Koi grown on this food became popular and were exported to Europe, the United States, Asia, and the world.

He also worked on the breeding of Koi on Ishigaki Island in Okinawa. By increasing the amount of vitamin intake for Koi in places with high water temperature, it was found that the Koi was able to grow strong and beautiful, enabling successful raising in Okinawa. After moving to Los Angeles, he then moved to Hawaii in 2006 and his Koi farm became the largest Koi farm in the United States. The experience in Okinawa had become very useful in Hawaii with its year round summer and the food “Mr. Kodama – Koi Food” that is still used on the farm is now sold in the United States. Going forward, Mr. Kodama will continue to aim to provide Koi lovers around the world “a soothing lifestyle and make everyone happy through Koi”.

“Since I’ve tried the Kodama Koi Food, I’ve been very surprised how little waste I’ve got in my pond and filter, i.e., the absorption rate is excellent! That really helps to lighten up the bio-load of my filter and makes my job easier keeping my koi healthy. In regards to the nutrition, despite of what printed in the labels, you can tell and smell the quality and freshness of the food every time you open a bag of Kodama Koi Food. You can test it yourselves by smell-n-tell another brand of koi food and compare!”
