Some excerpts:


The individual larvae of black soldier flies, which are native to the Americas, can each eat double their weight of garbage every day, according to experts. The farm in Sichuan province then turns the bugs into a high-protein animal feed and their faeces into an organic fertiliser. ...

... China, Canada, Australia, and South Africa are among the countries where it is legal to feed poultry and fish with insects.

"It's more restricted in the United States and in the European Union," said Christophe Derrien, secretary general of the International Platform of Insects for Food and Feed, a non-profit representing Europe's insect production sector.

The EU will allow insect protein as feed in fish farms from July, Derrien said.

"It's an encouraging first step because the EU is opening up to this more and more," he said.
