Effect of insect meal on fish feed pellets

Since mid of 2017, the use of insect meal as fish feed is allowed. The effects of insect protein on the physical and chemical characteristics of hot-extruded fish feed pellets have now been examined.

The result is that insect meal does not have any adverse effects, but rather is a good substitute for freshwater shrimps meal  as key protein source for fish feed.
