SUMMARY. 1. From forty-five values reported for twenty species of aquatic insect species, it was found that the nitrogen content (N) of the food was significantly and positively correlated (r=0.97. P<0.001) with assimilation efficiency (Ase).
2. Therefore, the Ase of aquatic insects can be predieted, if the nitrogen content of the food is known, using the equation: Ase (%)=9.29+8.82N.
