Where to buy fish meal?

I have found sources for everything else.  This is the one thing that I have not found.  Any suggestions?

Not sure where you are located, but around here it is easily found in garden stores.  The stand-alone garden stores have more options than big-box stores do.  I would check the brand websites for mercury information before buying, though.  Otherwise, you can buy online from gardening and hydroponic shops.

Is the fish meal that you get from gardening stores OK to make feed with?

Well...you could try buying fish paste from Asian stores.  But it's a paste, so it's wet and yucky.

Pet stores often sell it for dogs but its very expensive. The livestock kind is much cheaper than the pet kind.

After watching a Monster Fish show about invasive carp on the Mississippi, I say find some Carp fish meal, and help reduce the population of carp.

Fish is a very good source of protein; high quality as it is meat based. I would be very careful about the source--feed grade vs fertilizer grade, that sort of thing. Google feed recipes, Late one night I tripped across some mixes in England where they still feed fishmeal. It gave very specific information, like making cookies! If you can't find a specific recipe,remember, a little goes a long way because it is a high quality protein.

Fertrell is well known for their feed ingredients.  Here's a link to what they offer.  You can try their "Locate a dealer" page on their web site.  Usually you can find their products at a feed store or feed mill.  Feed mills mix up feed recipes for people out of the ingredients they sell.

Unfortunately, I get "no results" when I search for a Fertrell dealer within 500 miles.sad
