Four species of algae are currently cultured for rotifer maintenance (T.Iso, Nannochloropsis sp.), rotifer enrichment (T.Iso), creating "green" water for larvae culture (e.g. larval cod are first "fed" T.Iso), and bivalve (shellfish) feeding (T.Iso, Chaetoceros muelleri, Tetraselmis sp.
Isochrysis sp. (T.Iso or Tahitian strain)
Chaetoceros sp. (muelleri or calcitrans)
Nannochloropsis sp. (oculata)
Tetraselmis sp. (suecica)
There are also starter cultures of many other species available.
Starter Cultures Starter cultures for various species of algae (right and above) and a 1/2 full cylinder of Nannochloropsis sp. ready for use (above).
Light Panels Light panels have a light intensity of 2,500-4,000 lux. Algae cylinders have a capacity of 240-250 L each with top and bottom siphoning capabilities.
