Introducing Ocean2Earth

Ocean2Earth (O2E) Australia has a clear purpose – to demonstrate innovation and passion for the environment, a circular economy and local employment by transforming marine, seafood processing, food manufacturing and timber industry by-products into naturally composted sea minerals which would otherwise be deemed for landfill.  

Ocean2Earth is based in the NSW Bega Valley, a region renowned for its pristine coastal waters and clean, green environment. O2E divert over 500 tonnes of seafood waste from landfill per year by assisting local councils, fisherman and seafood processors in better managing fish and other organic seafood waste.  

Brothers Tim and Kyran Crane launched their war on waste and circular economy business Ocean2Earth Australia in April 2019. By 2021 O2E compost became available to the public. O2E is also the first company in Australia to have government approval to sell marine compost.  

Ocean2Earth’s long-term goal is to expand this innovative ‘compost-not-landfill’ concept right along the Australian coastline, creating jobs and contributing to a global war on waste and circular economy movement. 

To build on our passion for recycling, Ocean2Earth has proudly partnered with O F Packaging to support and reuse post-consumer soft plastic. This provides our customers with a disposal option for their soft plastic packaging in their home recycling bin, diverting them from landfill.  


Here at Ocean2Earth we believe in “compost-not-landfill”, providing a seafood waste collection service for processors along with boat ramps where people can discard their fish waste in our specially marked blue bins.

The natural composting of the seafood waste into Soil Enhancer takes place at our EPA approved composting facility at Merimbula, it is mixed and composted with pine bark sourced from sustainable local pine plantation mill.

A specialised inoculant is added, compost piles turned regularly, pasteurised and aged for 6 months until the fish is completely broken down and turned into a rich natural soil enhancer. The soil enhancer in our 3L bags is screened and hammer milled to provide a fine powder ideal for the indoor and outdoor home gardener.

Our rich soil enhancer is tested to meet strict EPA and Australian Standards
