fish food for fertilizer?

FlysterApril 14, 2014

Ive got a buddy who used to have trout in his dugout. He has some leftover feed in pellet form and am just wondrering if it would be ok or beneficial to add this to my vegetable garden. Also could you plant right after?

Any idea what the ingredients in it may be? Needs to contain some form of nitrogen or other nutrients or minerals to be considered a fertilizer/ Add to a compost pile? Sure.

Can't see what benefit or harm it might provide directly to the soil without knowing what it is made of.

It's mostly protein, fat and fibre with small amounts of phosphous, sodium and calcium.

I used fish emulsion and it works nicely as a foliar spray. I sometimes water with fish emulsion in a watering can . It smells really bad for some time and then its OK :)
