Charleston Showa Koi Club

The Charleston Showa Koi Club

  The Charleston Showa Koi Club is a group of hobbyists who keep Koi. Members live in and around the Charleston, South Carolina area and usually meet from 2-5 PM on the 2nd Sunday of each month at a member's home. We serve as a valuable support network for our members, providing health advice, a library of Koi related material and equipment. We also host numerous public events and educational trips.

  In our membership we have two certified Koi Judges, four KHAs (koi health advisors), two professional koi breeders as well as several members that have been keeping koi for over twenty years.

  The Clubs Purpose

  The purpose of the Club shall be to promote, create and expand the hobby of koi keeping, breeding, appreciating and exhibiting; to disseminate information about these purposes to the Membership; to engage in educational and social activities related to our purposes; and to acquire and own such property as may be necessary for any or all of the foregoing purposes.
