When I was planting my pond, I was planning to use burlap in the plant 
baskets.  I was told not to because as it decomposes, little bits of the 
fiber break off and the koi eat them.  This kills the koi.  

I don't know if there is any truth to this, but I decided not to use 
burlap based on this recomendation.
