Fish Waste for CompostUpdated a year ago

We'd like to compost fish fertilizer with fish waste and use them on our crops. Which EM product do you suggest us add into the fish waste to speed up composting? How much should be used per ton of fish waste? According to your website, EM-1 MICROBIAL INOCULANT and Ag1000® Organic can be used in manure compost. What's the difference between them? How big of operation are you treating?  How many tons of fish waste? EM-1 can be activated to make 22x more usable product.  You can find the instructions at this link:  https://www.teraganix.com/blogs/effective-microorganisims/activated-em-1-recipe-page
Ag1000 Organic is basically activated EM-1, but we have done the work for you. It is only available in 55 gallon drums and 275 gallon totes. 

Basically you need to add 2 gallons EM-1, Activated EM-1 or Ag1000 organic per ton of waste.  Then add water to reach the desired moisture content.  Follow standard composting procedures with turning and monitoring temperatures.
