Fish Handling
koi-in-holding-tank_6822-1 ( aquapic)


We take great care when handing our customers’ fish, using ‘koi socks’ to minimise stress when lifting. We follow our trade association guidelines when moving fish. We are currently only authorised to move fish on journeys of up to 40 miles.

We are no longer able to supply vats for hire. If you need to purchase a vat, you could try here.

N.B. Releasing exotic fish or plants into open waters, rivers and lakes can cause environmental problems and is illegal. We follow a code to minimise such risks.

Pools are usually drained down to facilitate any netting or movement of fish, and to minimise stress.

Handling of fish is best avoided during cold weather (below 8-10deg C) and during the hottest summer conditions.
