Where To Buy

Locally owned and operated, Earthbank has been making Fish Compost since 1991. Since then we have supplied local farmers and gardeners directly from our composting site, currently located in Parksville, as well as through a variety of retail outlets located all over Vancouver Island. Our Fish Compost is available in bulk, as well as in 30 and 60 liter bags.

Our Process

Earthbank recycles clean wood waste (predominantly fir and hemlock) and fish waste (from both farmed and wild local processors) exclusively. We do not accept yard waste, biosolids, or other household biodegradable waste. Fish Compost is OMRI listed for use in organic food production, and has been used by local certified organic farmers for over 20 years.
