Koi are transported for many reasons, and doing it correctly involves preparation and an understanding of the factors involved. Too often, Koi become ill after transport, and many things are blamed when the primary cause was a lack of understanding of the stressors involved at each step in the process. Every effort must be made to minimize stress each time the Koi are handled. Proper equipment and supplies are discussed and methods are recommended to assure that Koi arrive at their destination in the best possible condition. Alternatives must be weighed at each step so that the health of the Koi can be maximized. Transporting Koi also involves an understanding of the ever-changing chemistry of the shipping water within the bag
