Ocean2earth Australia is a niche company dedicated to transforming discarded fish offal and aquaculture waste products – marine waste – into a clean, green organic compost which can be recycled back into the gardens and landscapes of Australia.
Founded in the Bega Valley Shire of NSW by Eden brothers and keen fishermen Kyran and Tim Crane, Ocean2earth Australia collects marine waste from boat ramps and seafood processors to transform it into organic compost. Their long-term goal is to expand this innovative ‘compost not landfill’ concept right along the NSW coastline, contributing to a global war on waste movement.
Any organic marine waste can go into the fish bins. This includes (but is not limited to) offal from any fish, abalone, sea urchins, oysters, mussels, seaweed and other marine creatures. Fishers can also discard their left over bait. But remember, choose the right bin and please remove your fish waste from the plastic first. Bega Valley Shire Council has provided yellow recycling and red landfill bins at the boat ramps to help you.
The compost end product is odour free, 100% organic and has been proven to be extremely effective for improved growth and plant health, as well as improved soil health in gardens.
