Extras







This product is more than ordinary bonemeal. This fish fertilizer blended from fish meal and fish bones gives you nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, a small amount of potassium, and many micronutrients.

Alaska fish bone fertilizer is a natural by-product of the fishing industry. It is made from fish and crab grown in some of the coldest and cleanest waters in the world, the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska. It is manufactured so as to preserve nutrients and will economically strengthen and build the soil over time, leaving the soil more fruitful rather than robbing it's fertility.
