Aquaculture feeds may be produced from microalgal biomass after phycoremediation of fresh market effluent

Author(s): Muratisim Obeid

The microalgal biomass created by the phycoremediation of wastewater is a significant source of lipids, natural antioxidants, and bioproducts as well as proteins. As a result, products for human nutrition and health as well as for animal and aquaculture feed use microalgal biomass and the chemicals obtained from it. For various bioproducts, numerous microalgal species have demonstrated great potential. However, considerable procedures are still needed to determine the ideal quality and quantity of microalgal biomass, particularly when it is utilised to replace aquaculture feed. The choice of microalgal species and their production are the constraints. The possibility for producing bioproducts from microalgal biomass that results from the phycoremediation of wet market wastewater is discussed in this paper. The consortium approach to wastewater treatment and a comparison of the availability of common aquaculture feeds and biomass output were studied.
