More fish meal, but growing interest in alternatives

More fish meal, but growing interest in alternatives | Agroalim et dechets organiques | Scoop.it
The absence of El Niño in Peru leads to an increased production of fish meal and fish oil this season. At the same time, inclusion levels of these ingredients is declining and farmers are looking for alternative proteins, such as proteins based on insects and algae.

‘Little consumer resistance to the idea of using avian poultry in salmon feed’

‘Little consumer resistance to the idea of using avian poultry in salmon feed’ | Agroalim et dechets organiques | Scoop.it
An academia and industry run project, aiming to encourage the use of avian protein in Scottish salmon feed, found consumers are, in general, open to the use of such protein sources, particularly if it means cost effective salmon production.

Insect Rearing on Manure:  Are Microorganisms and Antibiotics Being Transferred from the Substrate to the Larvae? 

Insect Rearing on Manure:  Are Microorganisms and Antibiotics Being Transferred from the Substrate to the Larvae?  | Agroalim et dechets organiques | Scoop.it
Introduction: Insects are believed to be a sustainable protein alternative for feed and food; however, food safety is an important factor. Besides the production method, the insect species, the harvest stage, and the substrate used is known to be important in the biological and chemical hazards of the non-processed insects.
Purpose: This study aimed to assess the microbiological and chemical risks from rearing black soldier fly larvae on solid pig manure. Additionally, two washing procedures were evaluated.

Via Jacques Mignon
Jean-François Kleinfinger's insight:
Results: "A microbiological hazard of rearing insects on the solid fraction of fresh pig manure seems to be present for certain bacterial groups. Escherichia coli and Listeria spp. disappeared after insect farming: they were no longer present in the residual substrate or the larvae. Yeast and fungi slightly decreased in the residual substrate. Salmonella, as well as sulfite-reducing anaerobic organisms decreased in both larvae and residual substrate. Washing the larvae did not decrease the number of microorganisms found. For the spiked antibiotics, carry-over percentages from the manure to the larvae was between 0.12% and 0.83%."  

Significance: "A transfer of microorganisms and antibiotics from the substrate to the larval biomass was found. For the growing stage, we could not establish an effective washing procedure. Farming insects for feed or food certainly needs special attention."

Pourquoi les abeilles disparaissent

Pourquoi les abeilles disparaissent | Agroalim et dechets organiques | Scoop.it
Ces vingt dernières années, les populations d’abeilles ont subi des pertes spectaculaires, jamais observées auparavant. L’agriculture intensive et l’utilisation massive de pesticides figurent au premier rang des coupables présumés. Mais certaines pratiques des apiculteurs seraient également en cause.

 

Enquête. Par Laure Cailloce. CNRS Le journal, 28.09.2016

La formule des formidables pyramides

La formule des formidables pyramides | Agroalim et dechets organiques | Scoop.it

Par Alain Fraval. OPIE-Insectes. Les Épingles entomologiques - En épingle en 2017 : Juillet

 

"On connaît les termitières cathédrales de 8 m de haut et de 70 000 fois la taille d’un termite ; on ignore comment les individus, qui n’ont aucune idée de la hauteur à laquelle ils se trouvent, arrivent à construire une tour stable. On ne sait pas non plus faire des petits robots autonomes (agissant en essaims) qui grimpent les uns sur les autres pour franchir une marche.


Une équipe de myrmécologues de Georgia Tech (Atlanta, États-Unis) vient de montrer que des fourmis, agissant sans chef et en suivant des règles simples, sont capables de construire et maintenir des tours de franchissement d’une trentaine d’ouvrières de haut.


L’espèce en étude, au talent repéré par hasard dans la nature, est la Fourmi de feu Solenopsis invicta (Hym. Myrmiciné), agressive et expansive. On la savait capable de constituer des radeaux vivants, ponts pour franchir des ruisseaux, constitué d’individus s’accrochant les uns aux autres par leurs tarses adhésifs. Les forces en jeu ont été évaluées à 2 fourmis (en poids).


Des enregistrements vidéo, en temps réel et en accéléré, de fourmis normales ou radioactives, de tours construites au labo autour d’une tige verticale, il résulte que tout au long des 2 ou 3 heures du maintien en place de la pyramide, les fourmis bougent tout le temps. Elles grimpent, s’accrochent là où elles perçoivent un creux, puis rentrent dans la tour, dégringolent à sa base, s’en échappent par des tunnels et regrimpent. Au fur et à mesure que l’échafaudage gagne en hauteur, il s’élargit à la base et prend une allure de tour Eiffel. Les poids sont ainsi également répartis. Une ouvrière, capable de survivre au poids de 750 congénères, s’arrange pour n’en avoir que 3 sur le dos.


Une avancée pour mieux comprendre les constructions animales et créer des structures bio-inspirées."
