Technology & equipment Post-harvest +1 more

US - Bell Aquaculture, the US's largest yellow perch farm and pioneer in sustainable fish farming operations, has announced the launch of its new product; Fish Rich Organic Fertiliser 2-3-2 (Fish Rich).

The announcement was made by Norman McCowan, president of Bell Aquaculture, who said: "Fish have been used as soil fertiliser since the Native Americans first began farming our nearby land centuries ago. Our new natural plant fertiliser, Fish Rich, is made from the remains of the Bell Perch processed at our aquaculture facility in Indiana."

Fish Rich is made from toxin- and mercury-free fish, has a very mild fish odour and is good for any soil. Fish Rich contains these three major nutrients:

  • Nitrogen, which promotes green leaves, and quicker growth response.
  • Phosphorous, which is good for root growth, disease resistance, promoting seed and fruit growth, and for blooming and flowering.
  • Potassium, which increases root growth, and offers disease and drought resistance.

Fish Rich is also a good source of calcium. "Calcium is essential for all plants and their maturity. Plants need calcium for cell wall development and growth. Pathogens attack weak cell walls to invade a plant, and a stronger cell wall structure will play a big part in avoiding this potential problem," Mr McCowan explained.

Fish Rich is made at Bell Aquaculture's recently built fertiliser building. The facility houses a 5,000 square foot production floor, already manufacturing the 2-3-2 Organic Fish Rich product, and a state-of-the-art lab set-up to handle special orders for custom blends of fertiliser as well.

The new fertiliser is available to purchase online at the company website
