Fish fertilizer is a quick-acting organic garden fertilizer that is made from either a whole fish or just parts of a fish. Fish fertilizers help promote the growth of various vegetables and fruits. While they typically have a fishy stench, the awareness and demand has paved way for deodorized versions of fish emulsions that are easily available. Fish emulsion fertilizers are not a new concept and are exceptional to use for gardens due to the various advantages including ease of use. The popularity and usage of fish emulsions dates back to settlers from Jamestown (the first permanent English settlement in the United States of America) who used to catch fish and bury them to use as a fertilizer. Fish emulsion is also used in place of toxic chemical fertilizers. Fish emulsions contain high levels of nitrogen and are sold as a concentrated liquid. Along with high amounts of nitrogen concentration, fish emulsions are also packed with phosphorus and potassium –basically all the chemicals that make up a regular fertilizer. The chemicals used in the fish emulsion fertilizers are denoted in N-P-K ratios. Fish emulsion fertilizers usually have a ratio of 5-2-2 or 5-1-1. However, there are also traces of other elements in fish emulsion fertilizers, such as calcium, magnesium, sulfur, chlorine, sodium, and micro quantities of many other chemicals that benefit plants, providing the ingredients that the soil may lack and all of which are necessary for a rich and balanced growth in the garden. Generally, fish emulsion is used as a foliar feed to provide a quick nitrogen boost for crops. Research by North Carolina State University affirms that applying fish emulsion fertilizers twice a week to plants showed a significant growth compared to other frequencies, making it an effective fertilizer option.
In 1987 I started looking for an alternative to chemical fertilizers. Having had good results using salmon meal as a protein supplement for dairy cows, it seemed reasonable to look to the fishing industry for a fertilizer. Those stories of the Native Americans teaching the Pilgrims to grow corn using fish for fertilizer came to mind. I discovered it really works! After several years of farm trials with various fish by-products I settled on white cod bonemeal. I found it gave the best results of any fertilizer products I used. Results were equally impressive on our vegetable and flower gardens, and we began sharing it with other local farmers. White cod bonemeal fish fertilizer is a natural waste by-product of the fishing industry. It is made from cod grown in some of the coldest and cleanest waters of the world, the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska. It is manufactured so as to preserve nutrients and will economically strengthen and build the soil over time, leaving the soil more fruitful rather than robbing it’s fertility. As a third generation farmer in the United States, I recognize the need to practice regenerative agriculture. For the past eight years I have tested and proven the effectiveness of white cod bonemeal fish fertilizer. I use it exclusively in our own regenerative program growing red potatoes and have found, as others have, that effectiveness intensifies with use. For the past five years we have experienced weather extremes, as have other parts of the world. In 1992, an early killing frost destroyed much of the potato crop. The past four years have brought drought conditions. Soils fed white cod bonemeal have brought forth better yields than those dressed with other fertilizers, and the crops have handled the stress better.
