Neptune's Harvest Fertilizer came about as an endeavor to fully utilize the fresh fish by-product from the filleting process. When a fish is filleted, the process of removing the edible portion from the fish, up to 70% of it remains! There was a need of a more economical and environmentally sound method of use for this valuable by-product.
That's when Ocean Crest Seafoods and Neptune's Harvest, in conjunction with the state of Massachusetts and its local universities, developed a process to turn the fish by-product into an environmental benefit. After several years of trial and error and further refinements, they now have some of the finest fertilizers available today.
