    Going back to your quote of 'sembetsu ' being a selection , it also refers to the fact that these fish are the culled boiled and fed back to their siblings.
    This is known as Sembetsu as a parting gift ! Giving for the greater good of the whole .

    Hi all ( no pun meant ! ) i Talked to Koi breeder ( farmer ) who when asked about Shusui told me that because of the difficulties involved in breeding good classic Shusui ( limited hi coverage ) A NEW name was added to the roll that of HI SHUSUI ! This was because so many of the 'poorer ' fish were being sold cheep or culled ! So now HI ON THE BACK IS NOT SUCH A BAD THING ?

    It is a marketing tactic. The judging standards for Shusui have not changed. What a person finds attractive should not change, but the reality is that people decide what to buy based on factors extraneous to their personal sense of beauty. Having a Shusui others will see as suffering a shortcoming of too much red will turn away people who personally find it attractive. With a label implying the excessive red is acceptable, the fish becomes acceptable to that person. ...Wonder what label would help increase pricing on those with a broken zipper?
