To complement the article on Compiled Black Soldier Fly cultivation techniques, I’ve added the bibliography of Black Soldier Fly research articles in the hopes that you fine people will help me add articles I may have missed. Where possible, I will be adding links to the free or purchasable articles. If you fine individuals find online links of the pay or free variety, please post in the comments section so I can post them.

The following represents the “nuts and bolts” facts relevant to Black Soldier Fly cultivation which were found buried inside of research texts. The key distinguishing factor is that they are organized by environmental considerations (in bold). Where inconsistencies are found they are noted. Assistance, suggestions, along the lines of additional sources, inconsistencies, and added environmental considerations are highly welcome. I hope to make this a very active post.

In the future I’ll be posting up an article on why BioSystems Design (and now others) are placing their bets on a product substitute for fishmeal. In advance of this article, I’d like to put up what I view as the best links for researching fishmeal.
During my research, my goal was to determine supply, elasticity of demand, and other competitive substitutes. Keep this fact in mind… Continue reading ‘Best Fishmeal Research Links’
Insect-Based Alternatives to Fishmeal is our target market at BioSystems Design, LLC., and it is very active! Neptune Industries, Inc. has signed a Letter of Intent with Ziegler Bros, Inc. a leading manufacturer of high quality animal feeds, to purchase over 40 tons a month of its Insect-Based Feed.
We like the news at BioSystems, because it shows introductory acceptance of Insect-Based Feed as an excellent option for animal feed, fishmeal in particular. Neptune Industries, Inc. is progressing on standards certification for Insect-Based Feed along with other scientific developments that complement the fishmeal market. Neptune is breaking down barriers for the industry, and we are excited to see it – with full confidence in our own Insect-Based Feed which we plan to have prepared just in time to enjoy the benefits of a young, versatile fishmeal market.
