Keywords: Fish

Our pond fish are suitable for keeping outside year-round in New Zealand conditions.

Pond fish are generally hardy varieties which tolerate a range of temperatures & conditions.

The majority of fish kept in ponds in New Zealand are Goldfish, for further information on their requirements please visit our article

We frequently get requests for Koi Carp, unfortunatley it is illegal for us to supply Koi Carp which are considered a serious pest fish in New Zealand, however Shubunkin varieties of Goldfish come in a range of colours & patterns & are suitable for ponds.

Please help to protect New Zealand waterways- Do not keep pest fish & never release domestic fish into wild habitats. Also please consider

for your pond or garden feature.
