At Ynsect, we use insects to bioconvert organic substrates, such as cereal byproducts, and transform those insects into sustainable nutrient resource for agro-industries and bioactive compounds for green chemistry.
Animal nutrition and particularly fish nutrition is a natural application domain for insects. After all, we fish with a maggot at the end of the hook! Aquaculture is a growing business: world aquaculture production was estimated at about 66 million tons in 2007, against 16.6 million tons in 1991. With a high competition for proteins, there is a stress on feed for fish: fishmeal prices have been multiplied by 3 in 10 years.
By providing a new type of insect-based sustainable feed, Ynsect proposes a complement to those existing fish feed. Ynsect products, whether proteins, lipids, or hydrolysates have a high digestibility. They are adapted to young fishes as well as bigger ones and so can accompany the fish all along its life. They are adapted to carnivorous fish like salmons, as well as omnivorous fish like tilapia. We quarantee our products free of pathogens, with premium quality standards. These products can also apply to porks and poultry, and to all animals which naturally nourish themselves on insects.
