Mark Bodycott, years ago on a whim, I built a water garden in my backyard. I became more and more interested in ponds and water gardens, I was hooked! I went to a new store (at the time) Quality Koi to check it out. After spending some time at the store they offered me a part-time job. Cool right? So there I was 28 years old thinking about a major career change while I netted Koi and backwashed filters. After working part-time the owner asked me to close my auto shop and manage the store full-time. This was a dream come true for me. After several years and changes I started USA Koi and USAKOI.COM. I was the first person and only distributor to break Evolution Aqua's Answer onto the scene in the USA. Now I have cut back my equipment sales and started to sell Koi almost exclusively. Here at USA Koi I have retail and wholesale Koi sales, Japan trips, direct shipments and many other services. To compete in this Internet world, I try to offer the best customer service you can receive along with healthy quality Koi.
