  author={Arnaud Muller-Feuga},
  journal={Journal of Applied Phycology},
Algae are utilized diversely in aquaculture, but theirmain applications are related to nutrition. They areused in toto, as a sole component or as a foodadditive to supply basic nutrients, color the flesh ofsalmonids or for other biological activities. The needfor nutritional sources safer than traditional animalproducts has renewed interest in plants in general andalgae in particular. This report deals principallywith the nutritional role of microalgae inaquaculture.The larvae of molluscs… CONTINUE READING
