Hey there.. I live in Bavaro and just donated all my koi to the pond at the back of San juan mall. There is an aquarium guy in bavaro who does stock koi but they are not that great.. But for basic sankes and Showas he has some.. Also expensive though. I will be moving to Jarabacoa and will be starting another pond there. if you want to get in touch send me a PM.

There is a restarurant in Santiago ,at the intersection of Del Sol and Francia...it has a pond full of those fish, right at the front door...one night when I was leaving and had to many wooble pops, I was standing there trying to count exactly how many of those Koi they had in the pond....so when the bartender asked me how many, all I could say was to many........If you want I can get you the name of Koi residence........

Extend your imaginatoon a bit and consider the benefits of aquaculture in a huge scale in RD . Fish protien is good for you.
The Huntsman Marine Science center of Saint Andrews by the Sea, New Brunswick. Canada had an international aquaculture program. Reason why Chile is big in Atlantic Salmon aquaculture. Also tropical species aquaculture. In the Solomon Islands.
Big business for domestic and export ... lots of process jobs. Full training for Technologists.
Win win solution., to better secure the bread basket in DR

Excellent idea. A dozen years ago I had an opportunity to spead a week in Equador where I saw, smelled, toured, the shrimp operation of aquaculture in that country.

The trick is to eliminate from the map China, Viet Nam, Thailand, and a few others that agree this is a good idea. LOL
