As the world grows hungrier for animal protein, insects could be the new way to feed livestock.

Most farmers go to great lengths to keep insects at bay. For a growing cadre of livestock and fish producers though, bugs have never been so welcome.

Despite the appearance of some insect-based foods on store shelves — protein bars and tortilla chips made from crickets, for instance — creepy-crawlies are still a little distasteful for most.

However, food producers are likely to feel the pinch as the world’s population climbs to nine billion by 2050, while rising incomes in large countries like China and India lead to greater demand for meat-rich diets. So entrepreneurs, researchers, and even the United Nations are looking for an animal feed less expensive than the soybeans and fishmeal typically used today. Insects like mealworms and fly larvae, a natural food for wild birds and fish, could be a near-perfect replacement. With several startups planning industrial-scale operations, it may not be long before some poultry or fish entrées are raised on a regular diet of bugs.  Read more …

An independent report commissioned by the Nova Scotia government is casting doubt on the commercial viability of farming Atlantic salmon in land-based, closed-containment facilities.

The report by Gardner Pinfold Consulting concludes that land-based salmon farming operations — while technically feasible — would have to be large-scale to overcome the inherent engineering, building, labour and energy costs.  Read more …

It will probably be the largest audience Campbell River and Northern Vancouver Island has ever had.

The most popular on air news magazine in North America, 60 Minuteson CBS with an average of 11.6 million viewers a week, will air a segment on salmon farming this Sunday at 7 p.m. PST.

Special correspondent Dr. Sanjay Guptaand a 60 Minutescrew were in Campbell River in October 2013 to film local salmon farmers for the program.

So the audience is huge and so too could be the repercussions — good and bad — for the salmon farming industry. About 70 per cent of all farm-raised salmon is shipped to the United States, a huge potential for a food producer that says it employs 6,000 direct and indirect jobs in B.C.

Ian Robertsof Marine Harvest represented the industry and was interviewed at length by Dr. Gupta on a farm site near Campbell River.  Read more …
