Fish Emulsion & Dealing with its acidity...........

Just wondering...what is everyone's opinion on this?

So far I have been hearing two different opinions:

1) Using fish emulsion that has just been mixed with water is ok, because even though the acidity of the solution is generally 3-5pH, the soil and the life within it will somewhat neutralize the acidity.

2) When using fish emulsion make sure to attempt to adjust pH before using (either by aerating, using hydrated lime, or both)

(I am talking about fish emulsion out of the bottle at the store - particularly "Neptune's")

Which opinion is correct? What do you suggest? I'm wondering if it's ok to use the solution right away, or if the acidity will be too much of a shock to the plants. Thanks
