What are the Koi Origins?
A carp is a fish originally found in Central Europe. and Asia. Other carp species were domesticated in East Asia, where they were raised for human consumption. The carp's endurance allowed it to settle in to many climates and water conditions, which allowed it to be domesticated and spread to many new places. Natural color alterations of these carp took place across many countries. Over a thousand years ago, Carp were first raised for color in China.
