Fish are considered as a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Less well known is that this also applies to insects. The role of insects in the proximity of local lakes for the food chain is examined by the AQUATERR project funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF. Ö1 interviewed in the radio show "Wissen aktuell - Insekten, Quanten" Martin Kainz, leader of the working group LIPTOX at WasserCluster Lunz, about this topic.
