Insect meal and oil for Atlantic salmon
Insect derived ingredients take off in aquaculture after the EU approved the use such ingredients in 2017. But what are the benefits for salmon? ... n-337363E/

Insect larvae have successfully been used as a feed ingredient for a variety of fish species. Black soldier fly larvae (BSF) are rich in protein (≈40% of dry weight (DW)) and have a well-balanced essential amino acid profile, similar to the amino acids of fishmeal, and can thus provide high-value feedstuff. Moreover, BSF larvae are a good source of minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, phosphorus, manganese and magnesium and contain a variety of vitamins. BSF larvae also have a high fat content (≈30% of DW), which composition will vary according to the insect feeding medium.


I Believe The Black Soldier Fly Has The Potential To Be A Beneficial Insect Second Only To Pollinating Bees
