5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the most important book about food sustainability, 26 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Story of the Fly: And How it Could Save the World (Paperback)
Probably the most important book about sustainable food to be written this century. It shows how we have ignored the concept of recycling animal nutrients. It explains in detail how two Englishmen, supported by an international team of complementary experts, have developed a method of converting the residues of abattoirs into high grade protein. They have found a way to turn three tons of waste into one ton of freeze dried, high grade granulated protein. This is perfect for feeding all kinds of fish and crustaceans, shrimp, lobsters, salmon, farmed Tuna, etc. It is also ideal for feeding all kinds of poultry. In addition, the AgriProtein team, using a variation of their fly larvae production system, are breeding sterile flies. These sterile flies mate with infected wild flies, and prevent their breeding. This is reducing malaria, and sleeping sickness in Africa and preventing fruit flies infecting fruit and vegetables. A brilliant win/win/win for nature, humanity and sustainability.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fly, 5 April 2013

This review is from: The Story of the Fly: And How it Could Save the World (Paperback)
The last chapter tells you about the very likely possibility that using maggots to feed some animals could indeed save the world. The rest of the book tells you everything you'd ever need to know about this fascinating insect.
