Over this weekend we will be running our ever popular growing on competition. Whilst the format remains the same each year we endeavour to make improvements. This year any fish purchased will be housed on “grown on “ in our refurbished specialized growing on tunnel where we will have 3 ponds with a capacity of 10,000 gallons heated to 24 degrees c. each pond will be fitted with automatic feeders to supplement our usual regular hand feeding to maximise growth potential. 
 
We will have available 250 high quality small koi all of which were born in June 2020. the koi available have been selected from the following breeders :- 
Oofuchi, Yamazaki, Seitero, Takahashi, Hiroi, Miyatora, Matsunoskue, Marudo, Shinoda and Sakuma. 
Wishing all our customers a good Christmas and hoping that 2021 brings you all good health, happiness and prosperity. 
We will be holding our traditional festive open day on Saturday 2nd of January when we will be open from 9am to 4pm. 
This open day gives customers the opportunity to view for the first time koi purchased by us during the Autumn koi harvest in Japan. These fish will be displayed in our undercover heated ponds, this area is not generally accessible to retail customers, so it offers the chance to view behind the scenes at Avenue Fisheries. 
If you purchased fish in our October growing on competition you can also view them and check on their development and growth. 
 
We will have special offers available on selected koi for this day only. Any fish purchased can be left with us for collection in the spring. 
SATURDAY 3rd & SUNDAY 4th OCTOBER GROWING ON COMPETITION AND SPECIAL SALE WEEKEND 2020. 
OPEN 9AM TO 5.30PM BOTH DAYS. 
 
Over this weekend we will be running our ever popular growing on competition. To allow more space for viewing the fish and to help prevent too much crowding we have doubled the size of our undercover area and added 2 extra show vats to display the special grow on competition koi. 
 
We will have available 250 high quality small koi all of which were born in June 2019. the koi available have been selected from the following breeders - Aoki, Hiroi, Marusaka, Miyatora, Takahashi, Yamazaki, Seitero, Teradomari, Shinoda and Ofuchi.  
 
These fish have not been previously displayed in our retail area and will be priced between £35 & £185. All koi will be photographed and measured and koi purchased will be kept in our indoor facility at 24 degrees c until Easter 2021 then cooled and made available for collection.  
 
The owner of the koi with the greatest increase in growth and also the owner of the koi showing the most improvement in quality will have their purchase price refunded and receive £100 value of the same quality food used during their growing period. Last years winning fish for growth was a Yamabuki bred by Seitero that grew by 13.5cm which was 3.5cm more than the average growth achieved over the 250 fish. The winning fish for development of quality was a Doitsu Sanke bred by Hiroi. 
At Avenue Fisheries we will be holding our traditional growing on competition on the weekend of October 3rd & 4th .  
 
Fish purchased over this weekend will be kept by Avenue Fisheries in our growing on facility at 24 degrees c until being acclimatised for collection at Easter 2021. Owners of the fish achieving the most growth and also the most improvement will have their purchase price refunded and also receive £100 of koi food.  
 
Last years winner for growth increased by 13cm and a Doitsu Sanke bred by Hiroi showed the most improvement. 
 
We look forward to seeing you on the first weekend of October. 
Thank you to all our customers who have supported us during these difficult times and we hope you are all managing to stay well and safe. 
 
COVID 19 VIRUS UPDATE. 
In line with government guidelines we are able to remain open as a business to supply the foods and products needed for animal welfare. The nature of our retail area, being outside and covering a large area, allows visitors to view our stocks of koi whilst observing the current recommendations on social distancing. Having operated a Bio- secure quarantine facility for over 20 years we are fully aware of the care needed. With this in mind we have installed hand sanitiser dispensers and will be asking customers to take sensible precautions and ensure they help us in ensuring social distancing is adhered to. Because of this we will only be allowing one customer at a time in our indoor shop. 
 
To help customers get the best products to ensure the welfare of their fish we will be extending our special offers that were available at Easter for the whole of May. Please view the “Easter weekend” post on our web site in the news section. 
 
If you are still concerned about visiting we are able to courier / post any dry goods that you require with postage at cost price. Alternatively we can pick and pack any items you require with card payment over the phone for collection from a designated area in our car park. 
Thank you for your custom during 2019 our 44th year of full time Japanese koi retailing, making us the longest established specialist koi dealer outside Japan 
 
COVID 19 VIRUS UPDATE

Having operated a bio-secure quarantine facility for over 20 years we are fully aware of the care needed. With this in mind we have installed hand sanitiser dispensers and we will be asking customers to take sensible precautions and ensure they help us in ensuring social distancing measures are adhered to, because of this we will only being allowing one customer at a time in our shop and will not be running a BBQ. 
 
We are still open for business as usual. Whilst the current government advice is to undertake social distancing where possible, we as a place to visit would be considered to be of relativity low risk as our premises are mainly outside with adequate space. To allow individual customers to maintain the appropriate distances from each other. 
 
We are fully aware of the differences between this human virus and potential disease transference with koi however the fact that we have operated a certified bio-secure quarantine facility for the past 20 years gives us some understanding of the care needed. We have hand sanitiser dispensers at the entrances to each area of our premises and have now added one to our shop doorway and on the counter. 
Unlike most retail outlets, like supermarkets and major shopping centres the nature of our business means that customers can view our stocks and purchase if required with minimal contact with anybody else and also in the case of the fish purchase something that we have not been in direct contact with ant other person. 
 
If you are still concerned about visiting we are able to courier / post any dry goods you require with postage at cost price. Alternatively we can pick & pack any items you require with card payment over the phone for collection from our car park. 
 
At the present time we are endeavouring to still have our customary “Easter special offers weekend” which coincides with the conclusion of our growing on competition. With the fish all being remeasured acclimatised and ready for collection. We will however not be be having our usual bbq as this may compromise customers from social distancing. 
 
We hope that all customers are keeping safe and well during these difficult times and look forward to continuing to serve you with our high quality koi and products whilst we are still able. 
 
Thank you 
We wish all our customers and koi keepers a happy Christmas and new year and thank you for your custom during 2019.
