To evaluate the nutrient removal capabilities of two red macroalgae, apical blades were cultured in the lab for 4 weeks at either 6, 10, or 17°C and nitrate at either 30 or 300 μM, typical of the seasonal range of conditions at a land-based Atlantic halibut farm. Stocking density was 2.0 g L−1, irradiance 125 μmol photons m−2 s−1, photoperiod 16:8 (L:D), and nitrogen to phosphorus ratio 10:1. For both species, the highest growth rate was at 300 μM NO 3 − with Palmaria palmata growing fastest at… CONTINUE READING
