    The Story So Far
    Creation Of A New Product

    Pelagia has been utilising fish and fish by-products to produce valuable and highly nutritious feed materials for over a century.
    It may have all started as a happy coincidence when farmers observed that plants performed better when decomposing fish were left near them, but thanks to science and research, we now have a good understanding of how fish material positively affects crops and the soil that supports them.

    Pelagia has 28 operating facilities across Norway, Europe and the United Kingdom, processing over 1 million tonnes of fish and fish by-products per annum. Pelagia is committed to zero waste from this industry, which is where Sea2Soil comes in. In fact, it’s a key part of this strategy.

    In 2019, our processing facility in Bressay, on the Shetland Isle, expanded it operations and obtained a license to utilise unused fish by-products to create a highly nutritious soil improver.
    Sea2Soil revives a traditional farming method that time has forgotten, one which aligns past and future and the path being carved out by regenerative farming.

    Nutrients
    Give your crops all the nutrients they need by directly improving your soil health.

    Typical Analysis

    Click the elements in the diagram to see how they help root development and benefit your crops.

    Nitrogen (N) - 5%

    Nitrogen is vital for healthy soil and robust plant growth.

    This element is essential for protein synthesis, structure, metabolism, and chlorophyll production. A balanced nitrogen level is crucial for optimal plant health.

    Phosphorus (P) - 0.7%

    Root development, crop maturity and seed production all stem from optimum levels of phosphorus.

    An essential component in DNA, RNA and ATP, phosphorus is essential for cell division and development of the growing plant. For this reason, it is an essential element for nurturing seedlings and young plants.

    Potassium (K) - 0.6%

    Potassium activates enzymes guarding plants against drought and heat stress, crucial for reproduction and growth.

    A deficiency in potassium makes plants vulnerable to drought, excess water, extreme temperatures, pests, diseases, and root issues. Plants will also be less resistant to pests, disease and nematode attacks due to root dysfunction and reduced rooting volume.

    Sulphur (S) - 0.4%

    Sulphur is essential for the formation of plant proteins, amino acids, some vitamins and enzymes.

    Important for amino acid production, chloroplast growth and nitrogen utilisation, sulphur is required to form part of an enzyme that facilitates nitrogen uptake - vital for healthy plant growth.

    Calcium (Ca) - 0.6%

    Calcium is critical for root cap formation and strength, and thus for root growth and development.

    A major constituent of cell walls important for cell division and elongation as well as root growth. In the absence of soil solution calcium, root growth will cease.

    Magnesium (Mg) - 0.1%

    Part of chlorophyll, magnesium is used in enzymes and closely associated with phosphorus.

    Magnesium is the central core of the chlorophyll molecule in plant tissue. Thus, if magnesium is deficient in the soil the resulting shortage of chlorophyll results in poor and stunted plant growth.

    Copper (Cu) - 4ppm

    Important for photosynthesis, copper also contributes to countless other enzymatic processes.

    Copper is used during grain production, and there an important element for soil health. One of eight essential plant micronutrients, copper deficiency can lead to increased susceptibility to diseases.

    Selenium (Se) - 1ppm

    Selenium has been found to result in an increased tolerance towards environmental stressors.

    Balancing soil selenium is critical to avoid environmental risks. Adequate levels enhance plant tolerance to stress factors like drought, salinity, and toxic metals, safeguarding plant health.

    Manganese (Mn) - 4ppm

    Another element that is essential for photosynthesis and lignin production, which is important for plant growth and development.

    Manganese works to sustain metabolic roles within plant cells. It is also an essential cofactor for the oxygen-evolving complex (OEC) during photosynthesis.

    Iron (Fe) - 190ppm

    Iron contributes to the photosynthetic process.

    Important in plant enzymic function and involved in the synthesis of chlorophyll; iron is paramount in the maintenance of chloroplast structure and function.

    Zinc (Zn) - 60ppm

    Zinc is crucial for enzymes, DNA transcription, and nutrient content in grains.

    It forms chlorophyll, aids in carbohydrate formation, enhances cold tolerance and it's vital for growth regulation and stem elongation through auxin formation.

    Molybdenum (Mo) - 0.1ppm

    Molybdenum is needed by plants for chemical changes associated with nitrogen nutrition.

    A cofactor in amino acid production and a component in two key enzymes in nitrogen metabolism, without sufficient molybdenum, plants can accumulate nitrate in their leaves, but cannot optimise it.

    Nickel (Ni) - Trace

    Nickel is considered an essential element for the growth of the majority of plant species.

    It is involved mainly in nitrogen metabolism, the uptake of iron and specific enzymatic activities.

    Silicone (Si) - Trace

    Silicon is present in all soil-grown plants.

    It strengthens plants, reducing lodging and pest attacks, while boosting light absorption for enhanced photosynthesis and growth. Additionally, it protects plants from insects, diseases, and environmental stress by bolstering their defence response.

    Cobalt (Co) - Trace

    Cobalt is essential for the growth of rhizobium, the specific bacteria involved in legume nodulation and fixation of atmospheric nitrogen in legumes.

    Vitamin B12 which contains cobalt is synthesised by the rhizobium, therefore a deficiency in this micronutrient is shown in reduced Vitamin B12 production and lower nitrogen fixation.

    Chlorine (Cl) - 8850ppm

    Allowing CO2 into leaves to trigger photosynthesis and carbohydrate production, chlorine is critical for crop growth and photosynthesis.

    It assists with the plant's uptake of other soil nutrients and regulates the water flow through a plant. Wheat and other cereal grains are particularly sensitive to chloride deficiency.

    Sodium (Na) - 5630ppm

    Sodium’s presence in soil stabilises the osmotic pressure in plant cells and results in a more efficient use of water.

    Attaching to soil particles, acting as a repellent, this effect caused by the presence of sodium disperses the soil and breaks down the crumb structure. It is these small particles that move in the soil water and block the soil pores that are so important for root growth.

    Carbon (C) - 27%

    Carbon is the main component of soil organic matter.

    Helping to give soil its moisture-retention capacity, structure and fertility, carbon helps to aggregate soil particles to provide resilience to degradation while increasing water storage and protecting plants from erosion.

    Boron (B) - Trace

    Boron is one of the essential nutrients for the optimum growth, development, yield, and quality of crops.

    Playing a major role in cell wall biosynthesis, Boron influences many growth factors including root elongation, tissue differentiation, pollen germination, pollen tube growth, and cell membrane functions.

      Paul Davey, Grisby Grange

      Arable Innovator of the Year 2021 – Silver

      “Sea2Soil now make the base for all my crop nutrition. I use it on all my combinable crops, herbal lays and establishment of cover crops. I have seen the positive effects of Sea2Soil. The dry conditions of 2022 presented many challenges to my crops. After applying 10l/Ha when spraying in May and June the crops saw good growth, increased canopy cover and less stress, allowing my crops to achieve optimal growth throughout this period of drought. Leading to much higher yield than the national average.”

      Dr Geraldine Fox, Quality Director at Pelagia

      “For the past three years we have been refining our process to produce an organic soil improver that is affordable, delivers a positive return on investment, and is farmer friendly. We see Sea2Soil as far more than a natural source of nitrogen, but as a soil prebiotic that leads to a healthier soil environment; better crop health; a reduced reliance on synthetic fertilisers; with an increase in microbial activity.”
