The Ogata Koi fry are culled or selected through around six times between the size of fry to 10-12cm.

The culling process will enable the Koi Farmer to select the very best Koi from the spawning.

Mr Ogata spawns between 3,000,000 to 5,000,000 Koi fry a year from his parent Koi, making the culling of the Koi fry a busy and very important time of year.
