This was the home page of the Southern California Chapter of Zen Nippon Airinkai, a worldwide koi organization. Literally, the name means "All-Japan fishscale appreciation society". Membership is about 6000 people in about 70 chapters around the world. Most of the chapters are in Japan, but international membership is increasing.

The So Cal chapter consists of about 100 members/families. Most meetings are held monthly on the third Sunday of the month at 10AM at various sites around the greater Southern California area. Many of the members of this chapter have been keeping koi for over 40 years. Several special outings/displays/events are scheduled during the year. The sole purpose of this club is to contribute to the enjoyment of the koi keeping hobby.

This koi club is strongly committed to helping beginning koi keepers. Since the old timers are not very enthusiastic about continually discussing basic koi keeping techniques at club meetings, time is set aside after the conclusion of the regular meeting especially for beginners. Anyone and everyone interested in koi is welcome in this session. Club affiliation, if any, is unimportant. Volunteers from the club serve as instructors in the Beginners' Session. Topics vary with the current interests of those attending the sessions.
