Blue Ribbon Koi Products, Inc. (BRK) is a family owned business with over forty years of koi keeping experience. We were hobbyists first, followed by the genesis of our business in 1990. We are founding members of the Mid-Atlantic Koi Club (MAKC) which is the largest koi club in the country. We supported the club by displaying our products at monthly club meetings, advertising in MAKC News, hosting meetings and by playing an active role in the annual koi show and exposition. In 2004 we co-located and teamed up with Premier Nursery and Garden Center to provide pond and landscaping design and construction services. We build real koi ponds using the best information and technology to provide a safe and healthful environment to grow and maintain beautiful healthy koi. Our goal is to provide healthy, crystal clear water with a minimal amount of maintenance. When you buy products and services from us you get our support and commitment to make your koi experience a pleasant and successful venture.

In the fall of 2005 marine livestock and dry goods became part of our business plan. Within one year, marine sales generated 25% of our annual income. We support the Washington Area Marine Aquarist Society (WAMAS) in much the same way we supported MAKC. Members of WAMAS get great buys on special order dry goods and unique marine life from our diversified array of suppliers. During our first year in the marine arena, Blue Ribbon Koi has become one of the largest dealers in the Washington Metropolitan area for
Oceans, Reefs and Aquariums (ORA). We actively supports the concept of captive bred fish & invertebrates to help save our natural reefs.

Water quality and fish health are paramount in our marine & freshwater systems. We offer a wide variety of beautiful, unique, healthy fresh and salt water fish. Partners John & Bob Bianchi both attended the University of Georgia School of Veterinary Medicine’s training program on fish health and we pride ourselves on providing accurate advice based on our years of experience.

We look forward to continued business growth and expansion to serve the greater Washington, DC, Maryland and Northern Virgina areas the highest quality marine and fresh water supplies and livestock at reasonable prices.

With the combination of Koi, Ponds and saltwater life, we have modified our company name to Blue Ribbon Aquatics to better suit our business model.
