We're pretty proud of our Crustacean Meal. Comprised of a mix of Crab, Prawn and Lobster(!) shell, ours contains no pond food Shrimp or bulking fillers. Just pure, crushed and milled shells. It is not a cheap product to produce but must be done this way to ensure the quality of it is actually worthwhile using as an input.
The shells we process contain (very) small amounts of residual Meat, particularly in the Lobster shell, meaning our Crustacean has a slightly above average analysis.
The mix of different shells provides its payload of NPK, with an approx ratio of 5-4-0.5, in a controlled release manner with some available at faster rates than others. It also contains good levels of Calcium in the Carbonate form, so buffers soil acidity and helps with nutrient uptake.
Crustacean Shell is a unique Chitin/Calcium polymer, this means the Calcium and Chitin exist in a unique matrix which, through soil breakdown, is separated, contributing significant Chitin availability to the plant.
This Chitin elicits an immune response from the plant which raises its natural defences against pathogens, pests and diseases.
A little goes a long way with this amendment so sticking to lower application ranges is a good idea and working up in gradual steps.
1/4 to 1 Tablespoon (3.5 grams to 7 grams) per 5L of soil is a good place to start.
