Three marine phytoplankters (Isochrysis galbana, Chaetoceros calcitrans andThalassiosira pseudonana), commonly used in the culture of bivalve larvae, were grown in batch or semi-continuous cultures. Changes in protein, carbohydrate, lipid and some fatty acids were measured as growth became limited by nitrogen, silicon, phosphorus or light. Under N starvation (2 d) the % lipid remained relatively constant, while% carbohydrate increased and% protein decreased in all 3 species compared to cells… CONTINUE READING
