Headline that cannot be ignored…

On the Guardian webpage today: “Plan to rear flies on industrial scale for making fish food”.  Some interesting facts that emerge from this story are:

  • More than half of the world’s fish is now farmed.
  • Price of fish food has risen as a result.
  • Raising flies industrially on leftover food waste is sustainable.
  • Fly larvae multiply their body weight almost 400 times in as little as three days.
