In this episode of A Look Ahead, James from Plant Chicago explains how we plan to utilize the larvae of a native species of fly called the Black Soldier Fly to generate feed for the fish in our aquaponic systems while also diverting organic waste from landfills. Learn more about Plant Chicago at http://www.PlantChicago.com. Currently, Plant Chicago feeds their fish fish a commercially-produced fish feed, like most aquaculture farms do. Commercial fish feed contains large amounts of fish meal and fish oil from small open-ocean forage fish like anchovies, mackerel and sardines. Plant Chicago hopes to use the larvae from the Black Soldier Fly to replace commercial fish feed, thus closing another loop and making the food production at The Plant more sustainable.
