Natural Seafood Fertilizer Blend

  • 35 lbs
  • An all-purpose fertilizer composed mainly of fish bone/ fish meal, shrimp and crab shell meals derived from the fresh cuttings of wild marine white fish species and shellfish originally harvested and processed for human consumption;
  • 100 % natural fertilizer – contains no additives for processing or preservation;
  • Pending registration with the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI);
  • An excellent source of water insoluble, slow-release nitrogen, available phosphate, soluble potash, calcium, plus micronutrients essential for establishing fertile soils and growing healthy plants;
  • Marine fish- and shellfish-derived nutrients and compounds are wonderful for vegetable and flower gardens, beds or containers, field crops, legumes, fruit-bearing trees, shrubs and hedges.

Pots/Containers 

  • New plants – fill your pots with a quality potting soil mixture. Mix 1 to 2 tbsp FISHTOWN® 6-7-2 per gal of soil, and slowly water it using steady stream of slightly warmed water.  Allow the container to drain well before putting in the plant.
  • Established plants – It is a must to fertilize vegetables and flowers as they grow. Mix 1 to 2 tbsp per gal of soil every 4 to 6 weeks. 

Gardens/Beds

  • Newly established gardens and beds – apply 1 to 4 lb FISHTOWN® 6-7-2 per 100 sq ft, spread it evenly over the garden and work it into the top 3 to 4 inches of soil before rows are made.
  • New transplants – generally, if gardens or beds have been fertilized with slow-release organic fertilizer 2 to 4 weeks prior, there is no need to do it again during transplanting. For plants with insatiable appetites, however, put 1 to 2 tablespoons in the planting hole at transplanting time and mix into the soil and water before dropping in the transplant.
  • Established plants – generally, there is no need to side-dress quick maturing crops. However, heavy feeders and plants that take a long time to mature benefit from it.  Side-dress 1 to 2 tablespoons around each individual plant and rake it into the soil, and water.

Field Crops/Acreage

  • Apply 500- 1,800 lb/ acre/ year and till into soil. Specific application rates depend on soil fertility and crop requirements.

Trees & Shrubs

  • Young shrubs and trees – apply 7-14 lb per 100 sq ft of root spread area per year.
  • Established shrubs and trees – apply 3.5-7 lb per 100 sq ft of root spread area per year.
