About the Yorkshire Koi Society

The Yorkshire Koi Society is a completely independent Society, the way it has been since it was first founded in 1975. We are happy to say we are still flourishing in this our 35th year. Membership still includes those with a lifetime of experience in fish and Koi keeping, qualities both valued and appreciated by newer members who bring life and vigour to the Society.

Membership covers the whole of Yorkshire, here in England and way beyond. We have members from the area's of Whitby / York / Sheffield / Goole / Leeds / Castleford / Bradford / Wetherby / Barnsley / Doncaster / Huddersfield / Hull / Rotherham / Wakefield / Cannock / Manchester / Sutton Coldfield / Scunthorpe / Darwin / Newcastle / Collingham, not forgetting our friends in the Koi Society's of Australia.

Our Aims :
