To all our valued customers,
Happy New Year!!
I am very sorry, but we are starting the new year with some sad news.
Unfortunately on December 28, 2017, we confirmed that one of our shipments from Japan came with the virus called KHV. They were all in one pond.
We had to terminate koi in that one pond on our farm due to KHV.
We are currently working with the assistance of our vets—Dr. Chang and Dr. Girey—and state and federal vets. We are in the process of testing all the other ponds (80 ponds in total) and making sure our facility is clean.
We have contacted all the customers who received koi during December, who may have even the slightest chance of contamination.
We are in the process of contacting all customers who still have koi at our facility and are waiting to receive their shipments. We ask you kindly to wait until everything has been cleared.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 808-354-7031 or 808-354-7032.
Once again, I am very sorry; but until we are confident that everything is clear, as a precaution I have decided to postpone any auctions and koi shipments. It is a very difficult decision for our business, but I believe nothing is more important than the safety and health of our customers’ koi.
I appreciate your patience and understanding on this matter and your continued support.
Sincerely in KOI,
President of Kodama Koi Farm
