Ozark Fisheries, Inc. an ornamental goldfish and koi breeder now uses spawning and indoor hatching facilities to breed its koi and butterfly koi. Ozark Fisheries has two farms, one in Indiana and the other in Missouri. The spawning facility and hatcheries which were started to handle the hatching of goldfish have proven to be a very reliable method for spawning and hatching quality koi and butterfly koi.
Company President Larry Cleveland says the spawning facility allows the production staff more quality control with the ability to pair up the best males and females to get a better overall outcome in koi colors. The indoor hatching facility allows for better hatching rates with fewer brood fish needed to produce the same number of fry. The fry also acclimate better in the ponds and this translates to more fish available for our customers.
Ozark Fisheries, Inc. who has raised koi for over forty years has been focusing the last several years on producing better quality koi. President Larry Cleveland says these spawning facilities and hatcheries which were expensive investments have truly paid off in producing better koi colors and providing more koi to our customers.
