Koi varieties continue to evolve and improve. Less than 200 years ago, all Koi came from the common carp grown as a food source in and amongst the rice paddies. Along the way the first Koi variety appeared as an Asagi type. With careful breeding and selection, many more varieties were produced and today there are over 25 major varieties with countless variants and crosses.
