Japan’s King of Carp Breeds Million Dollar Koi Fish
Kentaro Sakai is a champion breeder of nishikigoi carp aka koi fish. Just last year, one sold at an auction for an astounding amount of money— nearly $2 million USD. Sakai’s carp are prized by wealthy collectors for their vivid colors, distinct patterns and glossy skin. Sakai invites us to his fish farm in Hiroshima, Japan, to see how he raises these fish, who lead pretty pampered lives in his care.
