Marine Algae Production Benefits Fish, Mollusc and Shrimp Hatcheries

 
 
11 November 2015 -Fisheries Research Institute, Pulau Sayak (FRIPS) has been successfully producing quality seeds of algae as a food source for fish, mollusc and shrimp larvae in the hatchery. A number of important algae species for aquaculture are being maintained and multiplied in the laboratory facilities at the centre. The pure stocks that gain high demand from hatchery operators are Isochrysis galbana, Chaetoceros sp, Tetraselmis sp and Nannochloropsis sp. For stability of the strain, the pure stocks are cultured in the suitable media in a petri dish as well as in 12 ml test tubes. The 250ml Erlenmeyer flasks containing suitable medium is used to stock the strain to start the larger scale culture. The stock is then transferred into 2 liter up to 30 liter media. Pure stocks those are being maintained at the centre is categorized as diatoms non-diatoms. The diatom species which are available are Chaetoceros while the non-diatom species are Nannochloropsis, Tetraselmis, Isochrysis, Chlorella and Rhodomonas. Throughout 2014, FRIPS has distributed a total of 15,420 liters of various algae species to hatchery operators. Some of the stocks were also sent to local universities for research purposes. In addition, FRIPS also provides advisory and technical assistance to hatchery operators in cultivation of algae through site visit and formal training. The role of FRIPS in supplying these species have contributed to the success of fish, mollusc and shrimp fry production throughout the country.
