Efforts to increase the productivity of microalgal cultures have been focused on the improvement of photobioreactors, but little attention has been paid to the nutritional requirements of microalgae in order to improve culture media formulation. In this study, the main goal was obtaining a high productivity for Tetraselmis suecica (Chlorophyta) in semicontinuous culture by adding magnesium (Mg), silicon (Si), and strontium (Sr) at concentrations from 0.01 to 10 mM; at the time, the effect on… CONTINUE READING
