Online Lecture: "Black Soldier Fly Larvae reared on recycled phosphorus-rich substrates as a feed component for broilers"

The current phosphorus (P) use is inefficient and causes environmental problems associated with P losses from organic waste. Therefore, recycling of P from sewage sludge could be an alternative source of P for animal diets and thus contribute to P sustainability. However, sewage sludge P recycling  is potentially associated with restricted P bioavailability, toxic organic compounds and heavy metals contaminations. Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) have been suggested as potential ingredients for chicken feed. As shown in the literature, BSFL can accumulate certain minerals in the body. We produced BSFL with increased P content using substrates mixed with recycled sewage sludge and evaluated the effects of feeding recycled P enriched BSFL to broilers. This presentation will introduce the concept of BSFL use for waste treatment and reports preliminary results of our study using BSFL reared on substrates mixed with recycled P and other minerals in broiler diets.
