Koi coming from Israel have been a threat to the hobby for quite some time. It has long been known that Israeli Koi  are carriers of KHV. Could the USA be at risk from imported Koi from Israel???

You can rest assured that Kloubec Koi are KHV free. We do not have, never had, and will not import any Koi from Israel. Our extensive stock undergoes voluntary testing for KHV and SVC at least (2) times every year by a nationally recognized fish diagnostic laboratory. We have maintained a 100% virus-free status for years and expect to keep that spot-less record going well into the future.
