Asagi (ah-SAH-gee): The Asagi koi’s name is derived from the Japanese word for indigo or pale blue, and it only takes one look at this popular koi variety to see why. Sometimes referred to as the “Blue Back koi”, the Asagi koi is a blue reticulated koi with markings on its fins, sides, and cheeks that can be either red or orange.
Ideally, an Asagi koi’s back is evenly covered in pale blue scales before becoming darker blue as they grow out. The most impressive Asagi koi, such as those sold here at Koi Fish USA, offer a sharp definition between these two shades of blue and this is the essence of this koi variety’s beauty.
As one of the oldest breeds of koi fish, the Asagi koi is a much celebrated variety that is popular in many koi ponds.
