The identification, types, taxonomic orders, biodiversity and importance of aquatic insects was reviewed to facilitate sustainable culture fisheries management and practice. Aquatic insects contribute significantly to fresh water ecosystems, one of many groups of organisms that, together, must be considered in the study of aquatic ecology. As such their study may be a significant part of understanding the ecological state of a given ecosystem and in gauging how that ecosystem will respond to stress. Aquatic insects and the larvae attack fish eggs and fry. They also compete for food and space in the pond. However, mosquito larvae are a food for fish. So, some insect larvae can serve to increase fish production. Insect bioagents can control the alligator weed, Alternanthera philloxeriodes. The flea beetle Agasilles hydrophila; alligator, Amnothrips andersonu and the alligator stem borer, Vegtia mallio can control the weed effectively. Other insects that can control water hyacinth are nevil (Nechetina circhbornae) warmer (Atustache bruchi) and hycinthmite (Orthoguma terebranths). Paropoynk alliondis and Litodactylus leucogaster can control the water milfoil, Myriophyllum spicatium. The article reviews and discusses the identification, economic importance, life cycle, biodiversity, roles and taxonomic orders of aquatic insects to facilitate sustainable culture fisheries management and practice.
