Solid waste management is essential to maintain a healthy environment. Earthworms are capable of transforming garbage into ‘gold’. In the present study, an effort had been made to degrade fish waste through vermicompost by Eudrilus eugeniae with cowdung. The composts were analyzed for various physical and chemical parameters and the results showed significant difference in the gradual increase of nitrogen, phosphorous and potash value, thereby revealing that treatment of fish waste for production of vermicompost would be an effective method for maximum utilization of organic waste.
