Spirulina is one of the most extensively used microalgae for animal and human nutrition; its main interest is centered in its high protein content, 60–65% on a dry weight basis. In this study, Spirulina was grown in open raceway ponds, and several physicochemical (e.g., pH, dissolved oxygen concentration, temperature, conductivity and irradiance) and biological (e.g., biomass concentration and yield) variables were studied. The variables were correlated in order to implement a mathematical… CONTINUE READING
