The effect of temperature from 10 °C to 35 °C on the growth, total lipid content, and fatty acid composition of three species of tropical marine microalgae, Isochrysis sp., Nitzschia closterium, N. paleacea (formerly frustulum), and the Tahitian Isochrysis sp. (T.ISO), was investigated. [] Key ResultCultures of N. closterium, Isochrysis sp. and T.ISO grew very slowly at 35 °C, while N. closterium did not grow at temperatures higher than 30 °C or lower than 20 °C.
The effect of temperature on growth and lipid and fatty acid composition on marine microalgae used for biodiesel production
Cultivation temperature is one of the major factors affecting the growth and lipid accumulation of microalgae. In this study, the effects of temperature on the growth, lipid content, fatty acid
Temperature and salinity effects on growth and fatty acid composition of a halophilic diatom, Amphora sp. MUR258 (Bacillariophyceae)
Diatoms are of great interest for large-scale cultivation due to their high lipid content. The ability to grow over a wide range of salinities is also of great advantage. We studied the effect of
Impact of temperature and growth phases on lipid composition and fatty acid profile of a thermophilic Bacillariophyta strain related to the genus Halamphora from north-eastern Tunisia
Abstract A thermo-tolerant diatom species has been isolated from Tunisian hot spring water (40°C). The isolated diatom has been molecularly identified and classified into the genus Halamphora. The
Effect of Temperature on Growth and Biochemical Composition (Sterols, α-tocopherol, Carotenoids, Fatty Acid Profiles) of the Microalga, Isochrysis galbana
The present study suggests that the nutritional value of I. galbana Parke is, to a large extent, determined by the temperature at which it is grown and the harvest time.
Chemical composition of selected marine microalgae, with emphasis on lipid and carbohydrate production for potential use as feed resources
Out of the species investigated, C. muelleri had the highest production yield of β-glucans, obtained when cultivated at a 40% relative growth rate.
Effect of culture condition on the growth, biochemical composition and EPA production of alkaliphilic Nitzschia plea isolated in the Southeast of China
Alkalic environment was helpful for the steady operation of open pond cultivation of N. plea with the characteristics of fast growth rate and high EPA content, which exhibited its commercial value.
Effects of temperature, salinity, light intensity, and pH on the eicosapentaenoic acid production of Pinguiococcus pyrenoidosus
The effects of temperature, light intensity, salinity, and initial pH on the growth and fatty acid composition of Pinguiococcus pyrenoidosus 2078 were studied for eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
The effects of temperature on the growth of and ammonia uptake by marine microalgae.
Tetraselmis chui was the most efficient at TAN uptake among the four species and is a good choice for removing ammonia from indoor intensive marine culture systems.


Microalgae for use in tropical aquaculture II: Effect of salinity on growth, gross chemical composition and fatty acid composition of three species of marine microalgae
All species responded to change in salinity by modifying their cellular fatty acid compositions by changing their cellular protein, soluble carbohydrate and chlorophylla content.
Effect of light intensity on the proximate biochemical and fatty acid composition of Isochrysis sp. and Nannochloropsis oculata for use in tropical aquaculture
The total protein, carbohydrate, lipid and ash compositions, and fatty acid contents of two species of marine microalgae, the eustigmatophyte Nannochloropsis oculata and the chrysophyte Isochrysis sp.
Microalgae for use in tropical aquaculture I: Gross chemical and fatty acid composition of twelve species of microalgae from the Northern Territory, Australia
Twelve species of microalgae, isolated from north Australian marine, freshwater and hypersaline environments, were grown under controlled conditions of temperature, pH, photon flux density and
Influence of growth rate on pigment and lipid composition of the microalgaIsochrysis aff.galbana clone T.iso
The growth rate in continuous cultures of Isochrysis aff.galbana clone T.iso is suggested to be controlled so as to adjust the relative proportions of polyunsaturated fatty acids in lipid classes of the diet meant for larval nutrition.
Eight species of marine phytoplankton showed significant variation in the relative amount of some fatty acids (FAs) in response to variation in temperature. Large changes in relative amounts of
Studies on Fat Accumulation in Nitzschia palea Kütz.
Blue and red light independently favoured fat synthesis whereas a combination of both did not, probably due to the selective influence of these wavelengths on the production of fat precursors or the nitrogen content of the culture medium.
Studies of marine planktonic diatoms. I. Cyclotella nana Hustedt, and Detonula confervacea (cleve) Gran.
Bacteria-free clones of the small centric diatom Cyclotella nana Hustedt were isolated, three from estuarine localities, one from Continental Shelf waters, and one from the Sargasso Sea. Detonula
