How to Use SEA SOIL

ANYWHERE YOU GROW! Gardening Made Easy! Now you only have to buy ONE product - SEA SOIL - instead of multiple products (fertilizers, herbicides, conditioners, etc.).

SEA SOIL applied as a cover (mulch) appears to have the ability to act somewhat as a weed inhibitor. The organic nitrogen in fish is released slowly into the plants thereby actually discouraging some insects, which readily feed on leaves and buds of plants full and rich in fast-releasing commercial fertilizers.

SEA SOIL encourages the presence of earthworms, ladybugs, bees and other beneficial insects in your garden.

  • Increases water holding capacity (great for anticipated dry summers)
  • Promotes rapid growth
  • Creates slope stability & Adds organic bulk
  • Chemical Free
  • Constantly Monitored and Tested
  • No sewer sludge or manure used in our 2 year composting process

Use SEA SOIL to build a healthy garden by encouraging "the good bugs". Thanks to the beneficial microorganisms and micronutrients in SEA SOIL - our customers only have to use one product instead of 5 for their gardens.

Veggie Gardens

It's been proven in commercial nurseries since its inception. Many organic growers (such as Nanoose Edibles) use SEA SOIL in the growing of all their organic produce.


SEA SOIL can replace the need for fertilizers and herbicides and is approved for use in the B.C. Certified Organic Program. SEA SOIL is also approved by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for the U.S., the Island Organic Producers Association (IOPA), and by the South Island Organic Producers Association (SIOPA). We do not harvest any of our ingredients by excavating from the earth or harvesting any fish from the ocean.

Flower Beds

SEA SOIL has a weed-free status - meaning it will not bring weeds into your garden unlike many other soils such as many composted with manure.

SEA SOIL has no foul odor, and has a PH of 6.5: "Most plants grow best in a PH range close to neutral, with a slight bit of acidity, or 6.5 on the PH scale."-Sheena Adams, GardenWise Magazine.

Industrial Uses

industrial_before_and_after300.jpg This site was a totally de-activated road in Beaver Cove (Pt. McNeill) in the spring of 1995.

A thin layer of compost was applied to the road on April 4/1997. The area was then seeded and trees were planted. Above is the same road a year after the application. Note the visible difference between the control area ( no compost) and the composted area.

SEA SOIL is not just “fish compost” but an award winning, organic, naturally fertilized soil that will change the way you garden.


  • Replaces liquid and chemical fertilizers
  • Retains Moisture.
  • Increase Organic Content.
  • Introduce beneficial micro-organisms to your garden.

There are many more benefits of SEA SOIL. The more you use SEA SOIL the more ways you’ll find to incorporate it in all you’re growing; i.e. From seed blends, custom potting mixes, compost teas and lawn applications.

SEA SOIL works great on its own but most people’s gardens need a good organic soil amender, conditioner or fertilizer to blend in with their existing soil and this where SEA SOIL performs the best.

Growing Your Soil

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.

OMRI Tested

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.
