Neptune's Harvest Fish Hydrolysate
We are proud to represent Neptune's Harvest as our exclusive supplier of fish hydrolysate. Neptune's Harvest offers a consistent product with consistent pricing and availability, three very important things to consider when looking at fish suppliers.
In their own words....
"Neptune’s Harvest fish hydrolysate is an all organic highly nutritional protein fertilizer, made utilizing naturally occurring enzymes present in fresh North Atlantic fish. We produce this using a cold process employing enzymes (natural bio- logical catalysts) which break down fish, or fish frames (the part left after the fillet is removed for human consumption) to simpler protein complexes. This process is called Hydrolysis. The only manipulation the product undergoes is grinding and hydrolysis. This process yields a stable, non-odorous, liquid fertilizer that is an easy to use, safe product.
In the past there have been advan- tages in using manufactured chemi- cal fertilizers. However, as we now realize, this has been at the expense of the environment and depletion of many soil elements. The continued application of only concentrated chemicals on the soil have reduced much of the biological life that con- tributes to the efficient utilization of many plant nutrients.
Neptune’s Harvest hydrolyzed fish does no biological damage to the soil and will promote the growth of beneficial bacteria making the soil less compact and better able to drain, yet hold moisture better for future plant use as it is needed. With our cold process, the vitamins, amino acids, enzymes, and growth hormones are not damaged or de- stroyed. Because no oils or proteins are removed, the nutrients remain in the soil longer, and lower N-P-K rates can be used to meet or exceed the results obtained by chemicals with much higher rates. Some advantages to using hydro- lyzed fish fertilizer are that it re- builds soil fertility, gives excellent plant growth with increased yields, and is made from a renewable aquatic resource. Our hydrolysate fertilizer is filtered through a 165 mesh screen as a first step, and then through a 150 micron screen before it is packaged. This ensures an ease of application with most irrigation sprayer systems that is second to none.
Beware of imitations — Neptune’s Harvest is the leading manufacturer of fish hydrolysate fertilizers in the United States with extensive sales in the U.S. and throughout the world.
The nitrogen in Neptune’s Harvest fish fertilizer is derived from fish protein in the form of amino acids which, when added to soil, slowly break down into basic nitrogen compounds. While a percentage of nitrogen becomes soluble due to the nature of the manufacturing pro- cess, no inorganic nitrogen has been added.
It takes 10 pounds of fish parts (gurry) to make 1 gallon of Nep- tune’s Harvest Fish Fertilizer. "
