LIQUID FISH FERTILIZER - SUSTAINABLE & ORGANIC
WE’RE CONVERTING OUR WASTE INTO FERTILIZER
Each day, we fillet fresh fish to order at our seafood processing facility in O’Connor. Once the filleting process is complete, what’s leftover (heads, guts and frames) is waste. This is taken directly next door to Marine Solutions WA, a local processor of organic fertilizers, where it undergoes a conversion process to become organic fish emulsion - creating a new and useful product to the be used in sustainable agriculture!
THE BENEFITS OF ORGANIC FERTILIZERS
Natural, organic fertilizers have become highly desirable as the movement towards sustainable farming grows in both importance and increasing popularity. Fish emulsion is an important ingredient in sustainable agriculture, horticulture and viticulture as it contains most necessary elements for growth, while maintaining soil health.
REDUCING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
By converting our waste into fertilizer, we reduce our environmental impact by eliminating our waste, while creating an organic and sustainable alternative to synthetic, chemical fertilizers. What’s more, by working alongside Marine Solutions WA (our long-time neighbour since the beginning), we eliminate the need for additional transportation, reducing our carbon footprint even further.
ABOUT MARINE SOLUTIONS WA
All Marine Solutions WA fertilizer blends are registered NASAA Certified Organic, a certification recognised worldwide. Most of the fish emulsion processed from our waste product is used locally by environmentally conscious farmers in regional WA as part of their organic and sustainable farming practices.
HOW IT’S MADE
Once our fish have been filleted, the waste product is placed into containers and wheeled just 20m across to Marine Solutions WA, where it is passed through a specially designed reaction plant. When broken down and blended with organic chemicals it becomes a quick acting, organic, liquid fertilizer high in nitrogen.
AN ENDEAVOUR FOODS INITIATIVE
Since many local Chefs have kitchen gardens of their own, we produced a special batch of high nutrient fish fertilizer, made using the waste from our premium, wild caught WA reef fish. It's a gesture of appreciation to all our loyal fresh fish customers - an Endeavour Foods initiative, to offer an educational and sustainable gift, by adding valuable nutrients back into the soil where it can nurture new life.
