Methods of culturing phytoplankton


It is an established fact that the success of any hatchery operation will depend mainly on the availability of the basic food, the phytoplankton. The maintenance and supply of the required species at appropriate time form a major problem facing the algal culturists. The procedure for the phytoplankton culture involves aspects such as the isolation of the required species, preparation of the suitable culture media, maintenance of the culture in the laboratory scale, as well as large scale under controlled conditions of light, temperature and aeration and their constant supply in different phases of growth
