Fish aquaculture is a significant source of high-quality proteins for humans. The demandforseafood is increasing as the human population grows and the level of living rises. Toensuresustainability, seek for protein sources that have equivalent amounts of vital components. Researchers have been studying the effects of substituting fish meal with insect meals onthegrowth and health of aquaculture species for the past 20 years. Although studies have yieldedencouraging outcomes, knowledge gained from diverse publications is largely scattered. Thisreview intends to survey and compile information on important insect species as well asfeeding trials on replacing FM with insect meals. Data was gathered frommajor literaturedatabases such as Google Scholar, SCOPUS, ResearchGate, JSTOR, CORE, andScienceDirect. Asia has the most studies on insect use as fish feed, according tothe40literatures collected. Other countries around the world, including Africa, South America, Europe, and North America, have also published articles on insect-based fish diet from1974to 2020. The majority of insect utilisation in fish feed research has been conductedinAsia, mainly in China. The vast majority of the species picked are ordinary houseflies andsilkworms. Other varieties of insects, as well as alternative methods of digesting them, shouldbe examined for future research.
