Abstract

BIOCONVERSION AND NUTRITIONAL PERFORMANCE OF BLACK SOLDIER FLY, HERMECIA ILLUCENS L. NURTURED ON CHICKEN & FISH MARKET WASTE

Karuna Ganvir and Aasidhara Darvekar*

ABSTRACT

Black soldier fly, Hermecia illucens L., a dipteran insect native to Neotropical region, becoming popular due to its high attribute on transforming organic waste into salubrious vittles’ for poultry and livestock. Black soldier fly larvae fed on organic waste, reduces the environmental pollution and convert organic waste into insect biomass containing protein, fats and essential nutrients which can be utilized for livestock feed. Costly protein diet, fat supplement and compound feed diet formulations made of fish and soyabean can be replaced with Black soldier fly larval biomass production and can be a remedy for the future food and feed demands. The waste generated in chicken/meat slaughter houses and fish market are not recycled in villages as well as in urban areas and these are thrown in open places which can nurture pathogens and vectors that may lead to spread of diseases. BSF larvae are capable to recycle these market wastes and can gain nutrient rich insect biomass. In this study BSF larvae from fifth day old till prepupal stage were fed continuously on chicken slaughter house waste and fish market waste. When larvae reached last larval stage, larval biomass conversion and nutrient parameters were recorded. It is concluded that these two-market wastes can be recycled efficiently by using BSF larvae and various nutrients rich larvae can be utilized for livestock feed. Findings from the larval nutrient composition can provide data for food and feed industry for formulating their molecular nutritional constituent intakes into the diet of livestock.
