Koi: Chagoi



Chagoi are solid colored brown or bronze koi with a subtle reticulated net pattern. Although they are not nearly as flashy or colorful as other types of koi, Chagoi are still a welcome addition to koi ponds. Because of their close genetic relationship with wild carp, Chagoi are some of the friendliest and most docile koi available. This makes them the easiest to train to hand feed, and other varieties of koi may follow suit when they see a Chagoi hand feeding.

First, let us consider Chagoi. They were first produced in the Taisho Era ( 1912 – 1926), it is a dull brown or greenish brown all over with prominent scales, not all that different from the common Black Carp (Magoi). It grows extremely quickly, and it has a disposition to grow to a large size. Kataoka Masanaga, the author of the earliest data we have regarding Nishikigoi, surmised that Chagoi was a mix of Asagi, Black Carp and Doitsu-goi.  At one time we did also see many dull brown Chagoi, but in recent times Chagoi are bred with Black Carp in an attempt to produce Chagoi that are even bigger in size. Nowadays they can grow to be larger than 4 feet and seem to have a monopoly on the Jumbo prizes; but the coloring has grown lighter, and is now closer to that of the Black Carp.
