AQUAFLY: 12 research institutions & industry partners study insects’ potential for salmon feeds

The Research Council of Norway has allocated NOK 13 million (€1.58 million / US$ 2 million) to the AquaFly project. The project will spend the next four years investigating the potential of using insects as safe and healthy ingredients of future fish feeds. AquaFly will be looking at the use of insect meal as an ingredient of salmon feed, also in an environmental, social and economic perspective. As project leader, NIFES will be responsible for research on fish nutrition and feed safety, while our partners will be looking closely at other aspects giving the project a very broad perspective.
