MUNDO KOI is a fish farm, located in Brazil, for breeding ornamental carp (“nishikigoi”). We are proud to produce healthy fish, with organic growth and a controlled genealogical tree, obtained by systematic crossing of one male per female only, over more than 30 years.
We have also, since 2018, been working to produce a new variety with hybrid vigor (Heterosis), by crossing a common leather carp with our kois. The offspring have a naturally tougher and more developed body. In the second generation various patterns have appeared, including kohakus.
Recent partnerships with Public Institutions have enabled us to carry out research on
- Morphometrics and allometry;
- Cryopreservation of semen; and
- Extraction of DNA to analyze our fish using NGS (Next Generation Sequencing), which is being done in Japan.
Above all, we are committed not to subject our kois to any cosmetic surgery. With our fish, you can be sure that the phenotype is the same as the genotype.
