Maggot Farms For Fish Farms

Wednesday 17th May / posted by Paul Van Lieshout Hunt

A local company is looking to use maggots to increase sustainability in fish farming.

At the moment it takes 1 and a half kilograms of ocean-caught fish to feed and produce just one kilogram of farmed fish.

But high hopes are held that the black soldier fly larvae could not only be used to feed fish farming, but could be fed themselves using hundreds of tonnes of restaurant vegetable scraps.

And this can help your garden.

Paul Hunt spoke with Luke Wheat from Future Green Solutions on The Mag.
