SEA SOIL is by comparison an excellent product on today's market-a complete, living soil. Our goal as a family owned business, is to provide you with a quality product that produces a beautiful garden, organically and safely.
SEA SOIL is a complete soil that organically fertilizes your garden by adding nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, micro-macro nutrients and trace elements.
Our SEA SOIL bags clearly display our only two ingredients: fish and forest fines. Both are the finest ingredients available for composting today. Fish are nature's finest natural source of nitrogen and "forest fines" (an industry term for bark, forest soils, needles etc.) bring to SEA SOIL all the "good bugs" and richness from the forest.
We also add aged forest "fines" to our product, which have been composting at 60 degrees C. for a minimum of ten years. These aged "fines" are rich in themselves, providing our product not only with that dark rich color, but with potassium and phosphorus.
Bark waste, mainly hemlock and fir, from Canadian Forest Products Dry Land Sort (dry land indicating no salt water soaked logs) located near Port McNeill on northern Vancouver Island, is loaded into a large trommel-screen, where the fines are removed through the screening process and then transported to our site where they are mixed with the fish in our unique mixing process ensuring the saturation of each piece of bark. After a five week process of monitoring and mixing to the correct ratio, the compost is moved to windrows where it is again monitored and turned when necessary, composting for a period of two years at 60 degrees C. After a cooling off period, it is screened and placed in bags.
SEA SOIL does NOT contain any ground-up white wood, hog fuel, wood by-products or land clearing debris.
OK - So, I just went to the store and saw 3 other products that say "Fish & Forest Fines" - so what's the difference with yours?
Our unique ingredients and compost process produce a compost very different from other products available on the market. The following points will explain some of those differences so that you, the gardener, can compare SEA SOIL to those products:

Not the Landfill. All of our bags, pallets and pallet wrap can be recycled. Our plastic is made from no. 4 LDPE (Low-density polyethylene) plastic which can be recycled by returning clean, dry, empty plastic bags to recycling drop off centers or retailers and municipalities (curbside collection also) that provide designated plastic bag recycling. Wooden pallets can be reused or recycled at designated wood recycling areas with your municipality.
We believe that all soils should have a required minimum set of testing standards when it comes to growing. That is why we contacted O.M.R.I. years ago to start the process of approving SEA SOIL. We regularly test our SEA SOIL for heavy metals, ecoli and even fecal coliforms to make sure SEA SOIL is the best choice for gardeners and growers.
