THE PITCHERS

Soldier Fly

Fluker Farms and LSU Entomology have partnered to further research on the black soldier fly. The project will look deeper into the potential of using black solider fly larvae as a source of sustainable proteins. The soldier fly is harvested in the larval stage where they can consist of over 40% protein. Their nutritional profile makes the fly larvae a great source of nutrients to aquaculture and animal feeds.
