Purpose. To analyze a selection of professional literature and summarize the information on the specifics of cultivation of fruit fly, synanthropic flies larvae (maggots) and Chironomids larvae (bloodworms) for use in fish feeding. To consider the features of their biology, as well as opportunities and prospects for their use as forage objects in aquaculture. Findings. This work contains a brief review of the main biotechnological steps of cultivation of the above-mentioned dipterous insects for the subsequent fish feeding. The study presents features of the production features of different species of such families as Drosophila, synanthropic flies and chironomids. The presented cultivation technologies for these three families, both in small quantities for the needs of private individual and large quantities for the needs of legal entities. The optimal conditions for the development of these insects as well as the basic principles for feeding them to fish are presented. Data on the nutritional value of fruit flies, synanthropic flies and chironomids larvae are presented. Practical significance. This work gives recommendations on compliance with the veterinary and sanitary requirements for the cultivation of these forage organisms. The summarized information will be useful for researchers who are exploring ways to optimize fish feeding as well as for aquarists. The cultivation technology for fruit flies, synanthropic flies and chironomids larvaeoptimal both for fish farms of different types of aquaculture and private individuals is presented. Obtaining zoohumus as a valuable cultivationby-product provides the opportunity for additional revenue and integrated development.
