What does it mean when a koi fish is jumping out of the water?
Koi jump out of the water for a variety of reasons. They may just be playing and having fun or they may be being chased by another fish. Sometimes koi will jump out of the water to get oxygen, especially if the tank or pond has poor water quality.

No it means good luck on your struggles
This koi lived 4 hours out of the pond -- Today is 12/5/2009 and I found one of my koi on the driveway when I got home at 7 pm. I picked him up, ready to put him… in a zip lock bag for the garbage and noticed him move his mouth. I squeezed him and put him back in the pond. I put him between two nets and squeezed a few times and he moved a little more. He is alive!! I went to my video camera to see when he left the water and it was 3 pm in the afternoon !! That was 4 hours !! I will check how well he is doing in the morning. But before I went to bed he had joined the rest of the fish and looked well. It was a Heron who lifted him out and dropped him. He was flopping for about a minute or two and then lay still. My camera is about 25 feet away and cannot zoom. The Heron just walked away and left him. Why? I have no idea. The temperature of the air and water was in the mid thirties. I believe that was the factor that kept the koi alive. The group of koi 50+ that I have are beginning to go into their winter hibernation at the bottom of the pond. When the temperature goes below 40 degrees they begin to crowd together at the bottom of the pond. Today is 12/9/2009 and the injured koi is still fine -- just a few scratches and pokes from the Heron. Well done. It's always good to hear of a successfull outcome and good luck to the fish through winter.
Koi fish are a symbol of good fortune. The direction they are swimming has to do with the wearer's personality. Upstream means that one has an outgoing personality, whereas do…wnstream symbolizes more introverted. Cherry blossoms symbolize life, and how it is ever changing. When done properly, there will be blossoms of varying sizes, and varying stages of life, from tiny buds to full blossoms. There will also be petals floating in the wind, symbolizing death, whereas the buds symbolize new life.
Well koi fish symbolise strength and courage, and the legend and myth behind the koi fish is that it swims upstream to turn into a dragon. The Dragon symbolises the end of a j…ourney and overcoming the obstacle you faced. Therefore a Koi swimming upstream symbolises faceing a problem and being on a quest to put an end to it. A Koi swimming downstream symbolises that it has allready overcome the problem, people often get this to symbolise the end of an ordeal.

Now I am no expert, I have just had one of my fish jump out and I did some investigating on here. It seems that high Ammonia levels can be to blame... or low oxygen leve…ls. I suppose they are trying to escape it. I am going to check my levels right away. I have a very small pond and I never knew I had to check my ammonia levels.
Koi generally are ornamental fish whose only purpose is to be admired for their beauty. Dreams represent the feelings of the dreamer. So this dream might express the dreamer's… feeling of being valued only for his/her appearance rather than being respected as a full person.
fish jumps because there is a bug on the water and they jump at them to catch their food when you see lot of that activity and that means it feeding time so it the best time t…o fish! wish I help you^^

Both the moon and the koi have rich varieties of symbolic meaning, so the dreamer of this specific dream will need to discern how the metaphor in this dream applies to his/her… life. > Among other things, the koi represents determination and strength, particularly the ability to "go against the flow," that is, to maintain personal integrity even against popular opposition. In Japan, the koi is associated with masculine traits, and often appears during Boys Day celebrations. > The moon is also viewed as a masculine force in Japanese mythology, in contrast to Western cultures that view the moon as feminine. Because the moon has no light of its own, but reflects only the light of the sun, it is considered subtle and tends to represent spiritual or mystical qualities. > The image formed by the moon and koi seems to have a strong masculine force, combining subtlety and spirituality with determination and and strength. (That brings to mind the Asian martial arts.) > The dreamer should keep in mind that any dream is specific to the dreamer, so the Asian or Japanese associations apply to this particular dream only in so far as the symbols are meaningful to this individual dreamer. If the Asian or Japanese associations are irrelevant, the moon would represent the Divine Feminine (Mother Nature) while the koi might denote fluid grace and beauty. The subtle mystical and spiritual qualities would remain. > Other elements in the dream might be significant, such as whether the fish are swimming around the moon in a clockwise (positive, conventional, growing) direction or counterclockwise (negative, unconventional, diminishing.) The color of the koi, the moon's phase (full, waning, waxing) and the overall emotional tone of the dream should also be considered.
Koi are freshwater fish, however adding freshwater salt in proper amounts can keep them more healthy. Freshwater salt is not table salt nor saltwater salt.
The black koi fish is representative of the male gender, the sun and evil. Where the white is representative of the female gender, the moon and goodness
There are a number of meanings - Yin-Yang, Male/Female, Day/Night, Water/Fire, Sun/Moon. It all stems from philosophy of taoism.
I have an incomplete answer for this. I just got a tattoo of a koi fish that I designed (without the spot). I got it done in Japan and the tattoo artist decided to add it. He …explained to me that it when a koi fish gets older...something something...and that it was very japanese. I has something to do with the aging or wisdom of a koi fish.
The koi fish swimming up stream means the person is currently in a battle or struggle and are still fighting obstacles but wont give up. They have overcome obstacles and h…ave now gained the strength they need to continue against the current. The koi fish swimming down stream means they don't yet posses the strength to make it against the obstacles to move towards success. They have already achieved their goals, overcoming their obstacles and no longer fighting the current.
