Insect-based technologies: How buzzing is lending a hand

An interesting angle about how insect based livestock feed requires less water.
Excerpt:

Flies as waste managers

Startups and small scale livestock owners are not the only ones seeing potential in this process. Saudi Arabia is on board too.

In March 2017, it was announced that Saudi Arabia will host the first fly farm in the region, starting a new industry in commercial-scale production of insect-based meals as animal feed. The decision seems to be in line with the country’s anticipated 52 percent increase in poultry production by 2018, as well as a rise in farmed fish volumes to reach one million tonnes per year.

Insect meal’s relatively limited consumption of water in comparison to soymeal and fishmeal makes the process even more viable to Saudi Arabia which faces a possible threat of losing natural water resources in 20 years.
