  Black Soldier Fly (BSF) pre-pupae production has solved many environmental problems related to manure management and storage. Manure nutrients assimilated will convert into valuable protein-rich feedstuff. In order to resolve the challenge of rapid reduction in availability of fishmeal, the study on the use of pre-pupae as its replacement is necessary. The objective of this project is to formulate fish feed using BSF pre-pupae as protein source. The experimental pre-pupae grown on fruit waste were found containing 58% protein and 22% lipid on dry matter basis. Two formulations with 10 and 50% inclusion of pre-pupae were made. These pre-pupae were initially sun-dried and then, combined with wheat flour (49-89%), together with vitamin and mineral premix (1%) to form pellets of 3 mm diameter. Proximate analysis results indicated that the two formulations contained protein, lipid, moisture and ash in the range of 16-39, 3-12, 8-9 and 12-14%, respectively. This study suggests that BSF pre-pupae alone are able to substitute fishmeal as protein source in fish diet. Further research on fish feeding trials, digestibility and palatability so as nutrient retention is required to determine the applicability of BSF pre-pupae as feed on sustaining normal fish growth.
