    A Special thanks to Yamato (Neli from Zambia)

    Dear All ,

    I was pleasantly surprised to learn that there were some breeders Nishigoi in India...Who are working independently..
    and they have started to get some good results too ...

    But I was even more surprised to lean that it was our beloved Yamato who was helping them out ....

    I believe I had read somewhere that she had traveled to India and actually educated some of them.

    But looks like she had a tough time teaching them about selecting Oyagoi and culling (there seems to have been a lot of unlearning to do ) ........but her hard work has finally showed result.

    and I could see that she was still helping them over the Internet..

    Thank you Yamato,even though we are not personally acquainted...As a nation we can reap some the benefits of the hard work you have done ....

    Just wanted to let everybody in 'Koi Bito' to know that a member has done so much for the sake of the hobby ...

    Good for you! With the loss of Ray recently, I think it's most important to recognize the work folks are doing in this hobby while they are still alive.
    It's important to be encouraged, trust me.

    Thanks Dick, and KKMenon,
    Yes it is true I went to India and shared some of the knowledge I gathered over the years, and the things I learned in Japan during my visits of almost all the best breeders. I made some lovely friends in India, and I have been helping them progress in their breeding programs, starting with all the basics, like Koi varieties, parent selection, culling...and the rest. I have had some of my students progress tremendously, of which I am very proud of, and it is a continual progress as they go on.
    I dont do Koi commercially but enjoy them and breed them as well, for the fun of it and for the sake of learning some more...It gives me a chance also to practice some of the veterinary medicine I studied, which I am not utilizing for any other purposes at the moment.

    I take it that Aqua Aquaria India 2013 was an exhibition involving all sorts of fish and aquatic life?
