It is generally not recommended to add fish scraps to a home composting bin.

Fish scraps can produce a strong and unpleasant odor, and they may attract pests and animals, such as rats and dogs, which may dig through the compost pile in search of food.

In addition, fish scraps can contain bacteria and other pathogens that may not be safe for humans or plants.

If you have leftover fish scraps that you want to dispose of, it is generally better to throw them in the trash, rather than adding them to a home composting bin.
