Low hydrocarbon concentrations stimulated the growth of Tetraselmis suecica, whereas higher concentrations (200 ppm) inhibited growth. The content of chlorophyll a in this microalga was affected in a similar way. Crude oil had the most marked effects. Dispersant SEAKLIN-101-NT and mixtures of oil and SEAKLIN-101-NT did not show selective toxicity for the microalga, although inhibitory effects could be observed at high concentrations.
