In Vitro Commercial Production Of
Protozoal predators severely limit the successful pond cultivation of the alga Haematococcus forthe commercial production of the aquaculture industry's natural colorant astaxanthin.Commercial producers frequently experience predatory attacks that eliminate 90% of theirHaematococcus biomass within 72 hours. The development of a cost effective, commercial-scale, in vitro, predatory-free production system is proposed.
