      • Sunlight

      • Fluorescent

Cell counts l.jpg

Peak Algae Density

I. Galbana

10-12 million cells/ml

10-14 days

2 wk stability

T. pseudonana

4 million cells/ml

3 days

5 day stability

Hemacytometer

Count total in centermost 1 mm

Multiply by 10,000

Product = number/ml

Cell Counts

Motile cells should be killed


Harvest and feeding l.jpg

Algae Density

Wk 1 = 50,000 cells/ml

Wk 2+ = 100,000 cells/ml

Onset of spatting = 200,000/ml

Tank cleared in 24hrs

Larvae Density

5-10 larvae/ml

Harvest and Feeding

Liters to feed = (TD x V)/CD

TD = Target Density (1,000s/ml)

V = Volume of larval tank (thousands of L)

CD = Cell Density (millions/ml)


Harvesting and feeding l.jpg

Harvesting and Feeding

  • Batch

    • Total harvest occurs once or over several days

  • Semi-Continuous

    • Works well with diatoms

    • Part of the algae remains in the vessel

    • New media is added to replenish the algae removed

Purchase pure strain

Avoid contamination

No aeration

Half filed container

Redundancy

Holding

Test tubes

Conical flasks

Transfer
