One other note; there are no products with Genetic Modified Organisms (GMO's) in the organic fish food and will never be. We are against all genetically modified plants!

Hi All,

We are still working on pelleting and bagging the organic fish food; hang in there!

I want to share with you some info about the fish meal in the organic fish food.

The fish meal we use is for certified organic feed production and is from a certified sustainable fishery that fishes in pristine waters that are regularly tested for pollutants and chemicals like PCB's. This fishery has been sustainable for over 50 years and is well managed, only a percentage of fish are allowed to be taken. so there are plenty of fish for reproduction. The small pelagics fishery is mainly sustained by three species: Pacific anchoveta, (Cetengraulis mysticetus), Pacific thread herring (Opisthonema libertate), and Pacific bumper (Chloroscombrus orqueta). These are forage species: short-lived, pelagic, and small-sized species that have a low trophic level .There is no USDA certified organic fish meal available; wild caught fish can't meet the USDA certified organic criteria.  The main difference is whether or not the fish meal is treated with chemical preservatives like BHA or BHT verses natural ingredients such as Tocopherols.
The fish meal has to be treated or it will go bad very quickly. In USDA certified organic feed there is an allotment for non USDA certified organic ingredients, but they still must be organic ingredients, no chemicals are allowed. There is a 100% USDA certified organic label, most people have probably never seen a 100% USDA certified organic labeled product.

Ok Patrick!!!!!

Exciting let me know how to go about ordering it when it is time.

Comment by Patrick McKee on January 25, 2012 at 12:13pm

The organic fish food has been made and is waiting to be bagged!!!

Comment by TCLynx on January 5, 2012 at 4:51pm

I'm used to buying feed in 50 lb sacks but 25 lb bags sounds pretty good.

A 5 lb option would probably be appropriate as well.  I wouldn't get too crazy with too many different sizes.

Hi Everyone!

We are coming close to having USDA Certified Organic fish food available. Not only is the food USDA Certified but a lot of research and care to make sure it is the absolute best for your fish. Fresh,digestible packed with organic herbs and vitamins.

We are shooting for early February!

We know we will produce 25 pound bags. What other sizes do you want?

One pound, three pounds, five pounds, ten pounds?

We are planning to sell the smaller amounts in nice sturdy buckets so later you can buy a larger amount and re-use them.

Please just comment back to this post with a size you want, so we can get into production!

Comment by Patrick McKee on December 21, 2011 at 3:05pm

One step closer!

We are another step closer to bringing the Organic fish food to you!

Stay tuned!
