  •  Dr. Nguyen Duy Quynh Tram: „The dual purposes of using of the Black Soldier Fly larvae as organic waste treatment and animal feeds: A Case Study in VietNam


The black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) is an insect of which the larvae can eat almost any organic matter, including organic waste such as food waste and livestock manure. Therefore, the use of BSFL has a great potential in organic waste management. Moreover, the larvae are edible and can fed to livestock, fish or even people. Around the world, black soldier fly farms and composing facilities are being established to process waste into animal feed, with economic and environmental benefits. Viet Nam has gotten benefit greatly from black soldier fly farming to solve multiple problems it faces. In there, the farming systems can be large-scale as well as small size for individual livestock farm or even urban households. This presentation aims to review a role of black soldier fly larvae and their value for feeding fish in Viet Nam.
