MICROALGAE BIOMASS FROM PHOTOBIOREACTORS AS FISH AND SHELLFISH LARVAE

Objective



The project aims to develop photobioreactor culture technologies in order to increase and stabilise the nutritional value of microalgae.

In current fish farms microalgae are cultured "in sequence" in relation to larvae and live preys cultures. This processing system proves to be extremely complex due to the wide range of equipment, tasks and expertise required. The project aims to simplify it by detaching algae biomass production from the main activity in the rearing process of maritime fish juveniles and shellfish. To this end, conditioning forms that permit storage without a reduction in the nutritional value, will be studied.
