Fish Meal is a high-quality, organic fertilizer that is made from 100% whole, ground fish. It is a safe and effective fertilizer that can benefit a variety of plants.
Fish Meal is a broad-spectrum amendment that contains an impressive array of nutrients and trace minerals. It is a good source of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, and a variety of other essential nutrients.
Fish Meal also contains quality fats and oils that can boost soil microflora. These fats and oils can help to improve the health of the soil and the plants that grow in it.
We source whole fish meal, which means it contains the flesh, bones, and cartilage of the fish. This provides a very broadly effective fertiliser for soil that is a terrific standalone - or compliment to fertilisers like Feather Meal or Bone Meal/Blood Meal.
You’ll sometimes see whole fish meal advertised as “Fish Bone Meal”, Fish Bone Meal is a separate product and should be closer to white/beige and not have much brown powder, this part is the flesh of the fish, the flecks and smaller bits, you can see in Fish Meal as the bone portion. If the Fish Bone Meal you are sourcing has this brown powder, it’s just Fish Meal.
