Japanese Koi Handeling SockNorfine Koi Handeling Sock
Koi Socks are an invaluable piece of Koi handling equipments used to transfer Koi from nets to their final destination such as a measuring bowl or quarantine pond.
The Koi Enters the Koi Sock opening head first until the fish is completed inside the Koi sock. Koi socks can either be water tight or allow water to drain depending on the type you purchase but the idea is simple. They prevent the koi from jumping or wriggling free and being dropped damaging them selves allowing the safe transfer without the fish being damaged.
At Utopia Koi we recognise that our customers require equipment at a variety of price ranges. The Norfine nets offer superb value and are available in a variety of diameters in the non water proof mesh type Koi sock which as the name suggests does not hold water but simply allows the fish to be moved without the fear of it jumping from a standard net. At the upper end of the spectrum the Japanese waterproof Koi sock used in Japan by all the Koi breeders is superbly made and waterproof allowing the fish to be kept suspended in water whilst being moved thus ensuring body weight of the fish doesn’t cause any internal bruising or damage.

Norfine Zippy Isolation Net
Norfine Zippy Isolation nets are a superb way to hold Koi for short periods of time. The floating nets have four zips so the nets opening aperture allows fish to be quickly and easily transferred into and out of the holding net.
The bottom corners of the net are weighted so the holding net keeps its internal volume under water.
The pipework frame is sold separately. We recommend using 1” PVCU pipework which is cut to length and pushed together but left unglued so that the holding net can be collapsed and stored when not in use.
The Norfine Zippy Holding nets are pretty much identical to the holding nets used in japan and used extensively by Utopia Koi.
- Medium Zippy Net (60cm x 60cm x 60cm)
- Large Zippy Net (91cm x 91cm x 76cm)
