    Unicellular marine microalgae are widely used as food in the hatchery production of fish and shellfish. Molluscs like oysters, mussels and clams filter them from the seawater in all stages of life. Rotifers and brine shrimp also ingest algae, and these are then used as food for fish and prawn larvae. In hatchery systems algae are added to the larval rearing tanks to improve ‘quality’ of water as green water systems. The production of algae is very critical in successful hatchery management.
