Is insect-based food any good?

It most defiantly is, there has been much research into the nutritional value of insects for human consumption, see here. The verdict is good, apart from the thought of eating them they may be the future of food for us.

Fish love bugs and that is a fact! they jump out of the water for them, lie in wait for them hunt for them, they love bugs. One fish has even learnt to shoot bugs from trees. You cannot argue that if fish have evolved to jump out of the water, learnt to shoot bugs down and climb trees, they must love bugs. Yes, fish that can climb trees, there is quite a few able to do this. Scientists say that they do this to escape dried up ponds, but are they really looking for bugs?
