      That is because it gets decomposed after 30 to 45 days, all the smell goes off. If you open the bottle in middle it stinks real bad. Don’t open only shake in between.

    We are having large quntity of fish waster (50 – 100 kgs), it is ok we can add little amount of Jaggery, what would be the propostion, since we are worrying about the jaggery cost, even with the scrap jaggery .


    • Sangeet 11 October 2017

      It has to be equal quantity of jaggery to the fish waste. So 100 kgs is worth doing only if you intending this for commercial purpose.

  11. anbu aran 12 July 2016

    when i get the fish waste from the market it mixed with prawn waste as well as crab waste and its very difficult to remove the fish waste from it. Can i jus use the whole mixer to prepare the amino acid. Pls advice.
    Thank you

    It is surprising to note that the Fish Amino Acid has a shelf life only for three months. To my mind I feel it is a fermented liquid like any alchohle. I therefore believe that in case you keep the liquid in a tight container the strength of the Amino Acid will get enhanced like any alcohol or Arishtam.
    I will be greatefull if some one could clarify on this aspect.
