Mass culture of phytoplankton

Gopinathan, C P (1987) Mass culture of phytoplankton. In: Summer Institute in Recent Advances in Finfish and Shellfish Nutrition, 11 - 30 May 1987, Kochi.



Large-scale culture of micro-algae especially nanoplankton flagellates, and selected species of diatoms are necessary for feeding the,larval forms of molluscs or fishes, in a hatchery system. Since the bivalve larvae can feed on organisms measuring less than 10 micrones, these forms have to be isolated from the seawater and maintained as stock culture. Utilizing the inoculum, mass culture can be carried out in the laboratory conditions as well as in the open system.
