Removing cyanobacteria and associated toxins in aquaculture ponds

Results of this study demonstrated that a commercial, granular, SCP-based algaecide corresponding to 2.5 mg/L H2O2 can be recommended as an eco-friendly strategy to effectively remove populations of the cyanobacterium Planktothrix sp. without compromising water quality or other plankton communities.  

Innovation & Investment

Algae innovators aim to freeze out early-stage shrimp losses

A greenhouse in Belgium believes its innovative shrimp feed product, made from freeze-dried microalgae, packs the necessary nutrients for the crustacean’s most vulnerable life stage: the first three days of its life. 

Aquafeeds

Green water meal has potential as aquafeed ingredient
