Most modern fish foodfs are made using fish meal as the main ingedient. For those that don’t realise, fish meal is made primarily by harvesting our oceans of any fish that can be netted and mincing them up to use as food for the fish we keep. It’s not an ethical or sustainable practice but has been relied on for many years as a high protein, low fat staple for our fish pellets.
BSFL like fish meal has high levels of protein and low levels of Mono Unsaturated fats. The Mono unsaturated fats it does have are high in Omega 3 and Omega 6. It is rich in Amino acids and best of all it is a sustainable and cheap food produced in a circular process that converts green waste while producing high grade fertilizer and self-replicating larvae.
The Black Soldier Flies eat our kitchen waste and give us fertilizer and BSFL as well!
