Here’s what Sunset Magazine had to say about Carpe Carpum–
One man’s pest is another man’s fertilizer. Carpe Carpum is an organic fish hydrolysis (less smelly and richer in nutrients than an emulsion) made from invasive European carp that are destroying freshwater rivers and lakes in Idaho and Oregon. Your garden gets top-of-the-line food, while the people (and fish and migratory birds) of those states get their ecosystems back. (August 2015)
From the Carpe Carpum website:
Make beneficial organic fertilizer out of so many invasive carp that native plants and critters in our local watersheds are restored, especially trout and baby ducks.
Take Action (the website suggests)
You can help clean our lakes and rivers and grow a fabulous garden by ordering your own Carpe Carpum plant food.
So I did. One quart is $15.98 plus shipping for a total of $26 and change. A bit pricey but worth it, I decided, to rid ecosystems of European carp.
I have no connection to Carp Solutions and Carpe Carpum. Just thought you’d want to know about it.
