Sustainability

Our crab shell fertiliser is pure and simply crab shell. Washed in sea water. Dried in the Guernsey sun. Nothing added. Nothing taken away. 

All the crab shell we use is from crabs that are pot-caught. It is a low-impact and sustainable way of fishing that allows any bycatch, undersized crabs or females with eggs to be returned safely to the open water. If they don’t match sustainability standards, the crabs are taken out and sent on their way. A female Chancre crab will produce up to 3 million eggs in her lifetime. That’s why crab is such a prolific and sustainable food choice.
