FishScience new formula fish foods are nor rich in insect meal to replace much of the fish based ingredients that are traditionally used in fish foods.

FishScience founder Dr David Pool says: "Most of the fish we keep in aquaria are not fish eaters and yet the foods we give them are based on fish meal."
The insect meal used in the new formula is cultured in Europe and brings a number of benefits both to the fish and to the environment:  
It contains Inulin, a natural prebiotic product that helps digestion and reduces waste.  
It reduces the use of fish meal which is taken from the sea, so providing an environmentally friendly and sustainable source of proteins. 
And most importantly, says FishScience, the fish really like the taste and smell. Even difficult feeders can be tempted with the insect meal based foods.
"The research we have undertaken has been outstanding," continues Dr Pool. "Fishkeepers instantly recognise the importance of feeding their fish on the insect based diet they would eat in the wild as well as the environmental benefits".
All the FishScience foods still contain natural ingredients such as paprika, shrimp, and Spirulina algae to enhance the natural colour of the fish, together with garlic, beta glucans and omega oils to support the immune system and ensure the fish remain as healthy as possible.
