Farming the fly?

Posted by barbara on December 4, 2012

Flies have long had bad press in the Australian context, none more so than poor old Louie, the animated creation of one recently deceased Bryce Courtenay.

Indeed the so-called Australian salute is testimony to the annoyance levels individuals experience when dogged by hoards of flies in bucolic rural and regional settings, with some years worse than others.

But does the fly, and its life cycle stages, including the writhing maggot, have something to offer an ailing world?

Author Jason Drew, Environmental capitalist thinks so and documents his conviction in The Story of the Fly and How It Could Save the World, published by Cheviot publishing.

Farm the flies to save the fish stocks? Sounds good to me.
