Low-cost production of the marine thraustochytrid isolate, Schizochytrium sp. LEY7 as larval live feed enrichement for the mangrove snapper, Lutjanus sp.
MetadataShow full item record
This study demonstrates the potential of low-cost production substrates in mass producing the Schizochytrium sp. LEY7 for maximum DHA production. High biomass yield was achieved by optimizing the culture conditions particularly the incubation temperature and salinity levels. Preliminary data on feeding trials have shown promising results and therefore confirmatory experiments need to be conducted to verify the results obtained.
