Every spring and summer, Blue Ridge spend thousands of hours culling their stock down to only the highest quality specimen. This ensures that we can offer Regular and Butterfly Fin that rival Japanese stock in quality, at only a fraction of the price.
They have a refined and meticulous process of culling which ensures that only their highest quality koi are offered for sale. While culling, Blue Ridge judge them on three specific criteria: color, pattern, body & fin conformation.
Inside one of many Blue Ridge Quarantine facilities
Blue Ridge operates over 200 mud ponds, with each monitored closely to ensure optimal fish health.
Parameters such as dissolved oxygen levels, ammonia, nitrite, pH and salinity are closely monitored and adjusted in order to provide the best possible environment for Koi and Goldfish to thrive.
Additionally, samples from each pond are examined microscopically for parasites and other health issues. Any affected ponds are treated accordingly.
Koi and Goldfish can have health issues that are not apparent while they are in the pond, but become apparent after they are harvested and brought into the holding facilities. For this reason, everything Blue Ridge sell is quarantined for a minimum of 14 days before being sold.
All Fish are kept in greenhouses at temperatures of 70°F to 75°F, where health issues are most likely to become apparent. All fish are monitored closely. A sample from each pond is examined microscopically to search for the presence of parasites. If health issues are found in any batches of fish, sales of all fish from that pond are suspended until we can verify that the issue has been resolved.
