    Microalgae culture with desired species of flagellates or diatoms is the basis of any finfish or shell fish larval rearing and culture system. Natural sea water is a complex culture medium containing more elements and organic compounds, and which supports mixture of all phytoplankton and zooplankton. But in the laboratory culture, monospecies culture of micro algae is being maintained to support different culture requirements. Natural sea water with added nutrients is recommended, because direct sea water may not provide the optimum nutritional requirement of specific algae. So enrichment of natural sea water is necessary with the addition of macro nutrients, micro nutrients, trace elements and vitamins. Each micro alga needs the specific culture media, with basic nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorous, vitamins and trace metals for better growth and multiplication.
