Doitsu

Doitsugoi (German carp) or Doitsu were originally imported from Germany to Japan in the late 1800's as a food fish. Doitsu have either no scales at all and referred to as "leather carp", or they have a line of large scales along their lateral and dorsal lines and are referred to a "mirror carp".

There is a Doitsu version of almost every variety; Doitsu Kohaku, Doitsu Sanke, Doitsu Yamato Nishiki, and Doitsu Hariwake just to name a few. By crossing Doitsugoi with Nishikigoi Japanese breeders literally doubled the number of available varieties.
