The Official Nishikigoi Variety Reference Book
This book is a comprehensive list of the 21 main Koi classifications, detailing characteristics that distinguish each of the 153 officially recognized varieties as established by the Japanese Agricultural Standard (JAS).
Each variety is presented with full color image of an actual koi considered to be an outstanding example of the variety. A brief description printed in both English and Japanese outlines the defined unified standards for each variety.
While already an excellent reference for the avid pupil of the Koi hobby, it is especially useful when determining which variety to classify show entries while benching Koi for competition.
