A very detailed study conducted by Belghit et al. that concludes BSF protein meal can fully replace fish meal for sea-water phase Atlantic salmon without negative effects. Studies like these are important to our insect space, and is a recommended read for anyone interested in aquaculture. We particularly appreciate the rigorous experimental design and proper method disclosure.

And the key conclusion is great news for the sustainability of aquafeed:
“A partial or complete substitution of fish meal protein with insect meal in the diet did not negatively affect feed intake, growth performance or nutrient utilization of sea-water phase Atlantic salmon.”
