The growth of a bialgal culture and its use as food for shrimp larvae
The cultivation of the microalga Tetraselmis chuii with the protection of the extracellular products of Chlorella kessleri, grown in a bialgal culture, allows its development in outdoor tanks without special conditions of sterilization or aeration. Fish meal and agricultural inorganic compounds are used as fertilizers. The growth of the mixed species is analyzed comparing it with monoalgal cultures. The best fit of growth data to a logistic curve is performed and the whole curve is compared using a covariance analysis. The stratification of T. chuii in the tank favors its harvest at high concentration. A bialgal culture (based on T. chuii at 50 cells/mm3) as food for the larvae of the shrimps Penaeus notialis and P. schmitti, together with hard boiled egg yolk and rotifers, achieves good development and survival.

Kechik, Ismail bin Awang. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1995)Aquaculture in Malaysia is experiencing rapid growth. Total production in 1992 amounted to 79,699 tons valued at RM 207.4 million. These figures are 23% and 25% higher than the previous year's. Semi-culture of the cockle ...
Sahavacharin, Songchai (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1995)Coastal aquaculture in Thailand has expanded rapidly in both area and production in the last decade. The important cultured species are the shrimps (Penaeus monodon and P. merguiensis), sea bass Lates calcarifer, groupers ...
Aypa, Simeona M. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1995)Aquaculture is regarded as the most promising source of protein food in the years ahead. Milkfish and Nile tilapia are the major fishes now produced but groupers, sea bass, rabbitfish, red snappers, carps, and catfishes ...
