Bug Bites are made with sustainably sourced Black Soldier Fly Larvae, which are known as the “super food of the insect world” for their great nutritional properties. Each formula contains up to 40% of this high quality ingredient. BSFL are also rich in protein and omegas, providing all the essential amino acids fish need to live a healthy life.
High Quality Protein
Offering a similar amino acid profile as fish meal
Rich in Omegas
A great source of healthy Omega-3 and 6 fatty acids
Translates into less fish waste within the aquarium
A natural prey that fish crave and devour
Using a unique cultivation process, the Black Soldier Fly Larvae are grown under controlled conditions for total sustainability that preserves natural environments.
Under controlled conditions, black soldier flies product larvae that naturally feed on decaying organic matter.
Unconsumed fruits and vegetables are used as larvae feed.
The larvae consume the feed, converting the nutrients into protein and healthy fat.
After a 2-week feeding cycle, the larvae are harvested and dried.
The dried larvae are mixed with other high-quality proteins, vitamins and minerals to offer a complete and balanced daily diet.
The mixed ingredients are processed in small batches and finally converted into a food format that is both palatable and easily digestible for fish.
The larvae used in Bug Bites are raised on unconsumed fruits and vegetables that would otherwise go to waste. This environmentally responsible approach reduces landfill waste while delivering high quality nutrition.
Bug Bites save 6,000 metric tons of food waste from landfills annually
(Equivalent to 300 x 53′ trailers)
The world’s fish stocks are overexploited. Making simple choices like feeding fish food made with sustainably sourced ingredients can help to reduce our ecological footprint and conserve precious marine ecosystems.
It’s estimated that 30% of the global food production goes to waste
Bug Bites also include other excellent protein sources such as Herring and shrimp meal, which are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. This not only helps foster healthy skin, scales and fins, but also boosts pigmentation and disease resistance.
Unlike big brand fish foods, Bug Bites are always prepared in small batches for superior control and quality assurance. The proximity of our ingredients (most of which are delivered right before production) also offer maximum freshness, which translates into better palatability.
