Aquatic Insects


True aquatic insects are those that spend some part of their life-cycle closely associated with water, either living beneath the surface or skimming along on the top. Many of the insects in these Orders share the same aquatic environment with trout and more importantly represent a significant source of food for the ecosystem. Taxonomy is the science of classifying all of the living things on our planet. Below is a list of the Orders of Aquatic Insects and an explanation of the species they represent.
