Abstract

The marine diatom Chaetoceros calcitrans f. pumilus has been examined for its potential source as live feed in aquaculture. The present study investigated e¡ects of temperature (20,25 and 30 1C), salinity (25 and 35) and carbon dioxide addition (air1CO2) on the growth and proximate composition of C. calcitrans under laboratory conditions. The growth and biomass of C. calcitrans were primarily a¡ected by carbon dioxide addition, and to a lesser extent by temperature and salinity.
