To look at the history of the Koi fish, you would have to look back to its origins some 20 million years ago with the fossils of the Common carp (Cyprinus carpio). It is from this somewhat drab fish that the multi-hued and prized Nishikigoi (Brocaded carp) are descended.

The important distinction between Koi Fish (the Japanese translation for Carp) and Koi (the commonly used abbreviation for Nishikigoi) should be made here to address the common misconception that koi originated in China. So where it might be true that fish came from China, the “living jewels” which have adorned palace moats are recognized as being a Japanese creation.
