I personally don't see any reason why you couldn't. The only thing to be aware of is the possibility of parasites or other infections they may transfer to your tank. Kinda the idea behind quarantine but I'm sure there are steps you can take to kill off anything that may be a threat, ie: freezing the food first. I'm not a pro here so don't quote me however, I'm sure someone will correct me if I am wrong... at least I hope.

I would definitely research first. If you don't find answers here you may try Google. I'm sure the fish itself is perfectly safe and like you said, a treat, but I'd research the dangers of feeding wild caught fish first.
