Are worms and/or BSF larva good fish feeds?

I've noticed there has been much talk about trying to feed fish sustainably as well as trying to make them healthy to eat. I thought perhaps this warranted a group. Another point to keep in mind is that the fish feed in aquaponics is not simply a means to grow fish, it is also our primary means of getting proper nutrients to our plants so one can't really expect to remove fish and veggies from a system into which no external feed is added. If you will be removing fish and veggies to eat, you will have to replace the nutrients you take so you can't expect to grow all the fish feed in the system and still have much nutrient left over to provide veggie growth and fish harvest. (No perpetual motion machine.)
That said, there is much that can be recycled within an aquaponics system or if not directly, it might go through worm or bsf bins before coming back to the fish.
