FISH BONE MEAL
Wild Fish Bone Meal is a slow-release fertilizer that is rich in essential nutrients and trace minerals, making it an excellent option for promoting healthy plant growth and improving soil health. As a natural and sustainable alternative to synthetic fertilizers, fish bone meal is a popular choice among organic gardeners and farmers. It can also be a safer and more effective replacement for traditional bovine-based bone meals.
- High in Nutrients: Fish bone meal is a rich source of nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, and trace minerals. These nutrients are essential for plant growth and development, and they help to promote strong root systems, healthy foliage, and abundant fruit and flowers.
Sustainable and Responsible Sourcing: Our Fish Bone Meal is sustainably sourced from commercial fisheries that target Pacific Whiting and groundfish species on the West Coast of the United States. These fisheries conform to Marine Stewardship Council standards and reflect a strong commitment to promoting socially and ecologically responsible marine resource management practices.
Slow Release: Wild fish bone meal is a slow-release fertilizer, which means that it provides nutrients to plants over an extended period of time. This slow-release feature can help to avoid nutrient burn and ensure that plants receive a steady supply of nutrients as they need it.
- Builds Soil Health: The nutrients in fish bone meal also help to improve soil health by promoting microbial activity and increasing soil fertility. This can result in healthier soil that supports robust plant growth, reduces soil erosion, and helps to retain water.
Traceable And Transparent: This product is traceable with documentation showing the source and processing of raw materials used in production and final product formulation. This means you can trust that the product is safe, sustainable, and consistently available as a renewable resource.
- Good Replacement to Traditional Bovine-Based Bone Meal: Wild fish bone meal can be a good replacement to traditional bovine-based bone meal, which may carry a risk of transmitting diseases such as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease. Using fish bone meal instead can provide similar benefits without the associated health risks.
Overall, wild fish bone meal is a natural and effective way to support plant and soil health, and it can be an excellent addition to any organic gardening or farming program.
