What is the ZNA?
The Zen Nippon Airinkai is an amateur koi keepers association who offer various activities and events to promote koi keeping. While the ZNA is based in Japan (the origin of koi), there are ZNA Chapters around the world - from Australia to USA to Singapore to Germany. The Koi Society of WA is proud to be the West Australian Chapter of ZNA.
The ZNA's activities are:
1. Organizing Nishikigoi Shows
2. Research and study of Nishikigoi
3. Service to the community
4. Spreading the Nishikigoi culture
5. Promoting the International Koi friendship
6. Publishing monthly Koi Magazine, NICHIRIN (Japanese and English)
The ZNA provides senior qualified judges on request to any ZNA affiliated Society worldwide.
