  • Hutt Lagoon, 28° 11′S, 114° 15′E, 600 km north of Perth, Western Australia and lying 5 m below sea level is the site of a pilot plant erected by Roche Algal Biotechnology for growing and harvesting the alga Dunaliella salina. [...] Key ResultFourteen ciliates, 10 zooflagellates and 4 sarcodines were observed frequently enough in brines of over 15% (w/v) salinity to identify. At least one parasite of D. salina is included in the flagellate group.Expand Abstract
