Fish nutrition requires precision. Our feed solutions respond to the specific nutritional demands of aquaculture, while combating overfishing and protecting long-term marine health.
Black soldier fly larvae are poised to solve some of aquaculture's biggest challenges.
Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) ingredients
Insects are an ancient nutrient source that have been part of the animal diet for millennia and are now increasingly recognized as a premium option in terms of quality and sustainability.
As a complete protein, BSFL contain essential amino acids, lauric acid, calcium, and prebiotic fiber which improves gut and immune health. Feed studies including insects also show improved palatability and behavioral benefits.
Crude Protein: 54%
Crude Fat: 12%
Crude Fiber: 13%
BSFL have high lauric fatty acid content. Lauric acid has been shown to have natural antimicrobial effects. This is a very unique trait that BSFL fats offer, and in the future, may be part of the solution to limit the amount of antibiotics used in farming (MDPI).
BSFL improve gut and immune health while providing antioxidants, antipathogenic, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Insect protein improves innate resistance to disease and parasites (NIH).
Better Water Quality & Cleaner Environment
Insects in aquafeed allow higher assimilation of nutrients, reducing aquaculture waste and water pollution. Insect aquafeed trials demonstrate improved fecal integrity and water quality (MDPI).
Our finely ground meal is defatted through extrusion, making for easy inclusion of BSFL for nutritional and palatability benefits
Oil extruded from the defatted meal contains medium-chain fatty acids, lauric acid, omega 3 and omega 6. BSFL oil works well as a health-promoting oil for monogastric species like poultry and swine.
Live BSF Larvae
Live black soldier fly larvae are the most sustainable, natural way to feed poultry, fish, swine, reptiles, exotic birds, and more. With no processing or drying, the full spectrum of bioavailable nutrients are available to animals. Live larvae promote animal health and positive behavior by simulating natural feeding environments.
