2014 Sakai Jumbo Tosai Grow-out Competition

Pan Intercorp is proud to host an unprecedented Grow-out Competition featuring World Class Gosanke bred by Sakai of Hiroshima. The venue for this Grow-out will be in the actual Sakai mud ponds at their world famous facility in Hiroshima Japan.

This Growout features Certified Jumbo Tosai Kohaku from Sakai’s world famous Rose bloodline, Certified Jumbo Tosai Sanke from Sakai’s unparalleled Sanke bloodlines, and Certified Jumbo Tosai Showa from Sakai’s exciting Ninja bloodline.

Jumbo Tosai participating in this Competition have been Guaranteed Female*.  All will be released into the mud ponds in Hiroshima in mid April, and will emerge from this intensive growth environment in the fall of 2014.

All participants are invited to visit Sakai Fish Farms in Hiroshima Japan in late November, when the contestants will be entered into an exhibition hosted by Sakai.  Each of the grow-out koi will be judged by SFF Managing Director Kentaro Sakai and SFF President Yoshimichi Sakai, and awards will be presented.

*Guaranteed Female: Guaranteed female means that, at the time of selection, the koi has been carefully inspected by the breeder and has been determined to be female.

When the same koi is harvested in the fall, it will again be carefully inspected to confirm it’s femininity. In the unlikely event that the koi should turn out to be a male at this point, it will be replaced with a female sibling of similar quality as selected by the breeder. This is the definition of ” Guaranteed Female”.


Please note that this grow-out competition is taking place in Japan at the Sakai Fish Farm facility in Hiroshima.


Participants may make their selection from Jumbo Tosai that will be offered at Sakai’s upcoming Spring Auction.  Jumbo Tosai available at this auction will be photographed and posted online in the weeks preceding the auction.
