Fish-based fertilizers have been around since the beginning of man’s ability to cultivate. One of the oldest and most effective fertilizer regiments was to dig a hole, throw a dead fish in it, and then plant a garden on top of the carcass. Fertilizer companies have come a long way in developing fish-based fertilizers since the days of burying fish carcasses. Today liquid extracts dominate the market and are simple to use, odor free, and release fast-acting nitrates into the soil that are hard to find from any other natural source. Not all fish fertilizers are the same. In fact, they vary greatly depending on the sourcing, processing, and extracting of the fish.
Eco-Hydro Fish by Eco-Nutrients is a superior fish fertilizer derived from Pacific Ocean bottom fish with average protein levels of 15-17%. Eco-Nutrients receives their fish from multiple fisheries, they then grind the fish and use a enzymatic process combined with low heat to transform the ground slurry into a quality fish fertilizer. The fertilizer is then screened through a 200 micron mesh Sweco screen. The end result is Eco-Hydro Fish; a product that is 98% fish and 2% hydrolysate which can be used as a root feed or as a foliar treatment.
The two biggest benefits of fish-based fertilizers are the fast-releasing nitrates that result in vigorous growth and the improved soil quality due to the increase in microbial life. Eco-Hydro Fish is non-phytotoxic and also can be used as a compost starter. Like any fish-based fertilizer, it is best to use Eco-Hydro Fish in the vegetative stage only when growing medical marijuana. Eco-Hydro Fish can be used in soil and hydroponic applications at a rate of 4 oz per gallon of water.
