With all the news of dead fishes washing up our shores, has anyone considered making their own fish emulsion fertilizer from those fishes? You can probably brew a year's supply of fish emulsion from the rotting carcasses. And the leftover solids after fermenting can be thrown into the compost. I personally have never done this before and merely read the brewing instructions from a random google link. http://www.farmcurio...ion-fertilizer/

Sounds like a good way to reduce wastage and get freebies. Of course, this must be done in a community garden or an isolated place, or else the neighbours will start calling the corps thinking you're hiding a dead body at home.

FYI
I don't think you want to go near these dead fish because they died from organic toxin poisioning according to
fish farmers. AVA claims lack of oxygen, however the fish farmers said fish having lack of oxygen will be seen gasping for breath and can be recovered using aerated tanks.

The fish that died, turned dead very fast. None of them were recovered using aerated water.

Some of these toxins cannot be neutralized by cooking and can be transferred to your plants
from the soil.

If you want fish emulsion, you can pick up fish water (salty ) and fish guts from the fish monger.

Grind up the fish guts after rinsing in fresh water to de-salt them.

Dig 3 inch deep holes opposite the root stem of each plant and put in 2 tablespoon of the solution
Cover back with soil.

You could spray EM before covering up.
