Feeding Bugs to Fish

Are fly larvae the future for aquaculture?

Growing aquaculture fish populations often relies on farmed sources such as poultry or soybean for feed. What if instead, we raised Black Soldier Fly larvae on food scraps, fattening them up to become a nutritional food source for farmed fish? An insect diet provides a massive amount of protein and has a much lower environmental impact.
