Believe it or not, summer is just around the corner! Whether you’re looking to plant flowers on your front porch, vegetables in your garden, or trees around the yard, you simply can’t get a better fertilizer than fish. Plants and vegetables love the natural nitrogen-phosphorus-potash blend in our dried fish powder, which is why we use it on our own organic farms!
Plants That Love Fish Fertilizer

Fish fertilizer dates back as far as ancient Egyptian times, when farmers used fish to produce higher quality crops. The Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to use fish in farming practice, and the ecological movement of the late 20th century solidified its place in modern farming strategy.
We quickly discovered that fish waste isn’t really waste at all – it drastically improves the health of crops, crop size, and yield. To help you reap the same benefits on your farms, gardens, and yards, we’ve been fishing for sardines and anchovies along the shores of Baja, California to create our special blend of Fish Fertilizer Concentrate. By using this in place of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, your plants and flowers will be stronger, larger and healthier, and they’ll be much more resistant to disease, fungus, and insects.
For most plants, the best part about this fish concentrate is that no other fertilizer is needed. This allows you to leave hazardous chemical compounds out of the equation entirely. And since one container is enough to fertilize hundreds of plants, it’s also a cost-effective way to make the most of growing season.
How to Use Fish Fertilizer Concentrate
- Make a notch next to roots of existing plants and pour 1 tablespoon of fertilizer
- Pour into hole before placing new plants
- Cover fish powder with soil to prevent smell for indoor plants
- Plow directly into soil for large farming operations
- Utilize with a drip irrigation system for existing crops
- Generally wait 4-5 months before reapplying fertilizer concentrate
Once you make the switch from chemical to organic fertilizers, it’s doubtful that you’ll ever go back. Fertilizers with fish are among the best you can find, without the risk of hazardous side effects. Usually one teaspoon of our fish fertilizer per plant is sufficient, although larger plants may benefit from a heaping tablespoon. Try applying one month prior to the first bloom. So shake those winter blues, and start getting excited about what you can grow this spring.
