ZAFRA TRELLES, Alina Mabel et al. Culture of Marine Microalgae with Potential for Aquaculture from the Littoral Between Puerto Salaverry and Puerto Chicama, La Libertad, Peru. Arnaldoa [online]. 2017, vol.24, n.2, pp.567-582. ISSN 1815-8242.

The experimental culture of marine microalgae with potential for aquaculture was investigated from May to December 2016 at the Universidad Nacional de Trujillo. The collection of 150 ml of microalgae between Puerto Chicama and Puerto Salaverry was carried out with a 20 μ net by horizontal trawling for 15 minutes from a fishing vessel. The sample was preserved with ice to evaluate the microalgal composition and, then, the polyalgal sowing was done in 21, 15 and 11 days to obtain a volume of 2 L with three treatments T1 (TNB-Amino 20-20-20), T2 (Heussler-Merino) and T3 (Humus), three concentrations of nutritional media and three replicates by experimentation. The diatoms that responded to the culture were Skeletonema costatum and Amphiprora alata for treatments T3 and T1. S. costatum is widely used in the feeding of crustaceans in aquaculture

Keywords : culture of microalgae; nutritional media; Skeletonema; Amphiprora.
