Microalgae paste: A potential feed for hatcheries
MetadataShow full item record
As an alternative, a potential feed for hatcheries during the La Niña phenomenon is microalgae paste, which is concentrated microalgae cells used as feed for larval fish, shrimp, and other aquaculture species. According to the experts, this product is the best alternative for live microalgae during difficult times of production. Microalgae paste is produced from four commonly used microalgae species in aquaculture - Tetraselmis sp., Nannochloropsis sp., Chaetoceros calcitrans, and Chlorella vulgaris. The availability of local algae paste as an alternative to live microalgae is an advantage to the local aquaculture industry.
