Are koi fish the most expensive?
In an auction in Japan, a red and white koi fish sold for a record $1.9 million dollars. This dubbed the transaction and the fish to be “The World’s Most Expensive Fish”.
Can you touch koi fish?
Sure, the occasional brush on the fingers as they swim past your hand in the pond or a kiss on the hand while you feed them is ok, but not picking them up out of the water. In some instances, with illness or distress, a koi keeper will have to handle his or her koi, but not otherwise.
