microalgae target application
microalgae as a one to one alternative for of live algae.
Prior to feeding rotifers to your larvae they should be enriched with the appropriate nutrients (esp. PUFA’s). To optimally enrich rotifers, the culture diet should be replaced by a mix of microalgae in order to obtain a nutritional profile in accordance with the nutritional requirements of the target species larvae.
benefits of using freeze dried algae
Single Cell dispersion
Retains the characteristic buoyancy of live algae
Remains in the water column for extended periods
No fouling of your tanks
For EPA enrichment NannoPrime is advised. Isochrysis aff. galbana “Tahitian strain” (T-ISO) produced at Proviron accumulates high levels of the ω-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in readily bioavailable lipid forms. It is also a rich source of carotenoids such as β-carotene, diadinoxanthin and fucoxanthin. The overall high carotenoid content combined with elevated levels of polyphenols and α-tocopherols provides IsoPrime with high antioxidant capacities.
Nannochloropsis sp. produced at Proviron accumulates high levels of the ω-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) predominantly present in readily bioavailable polar lipid forms. It is also a rich source of pigments such as β-carotene, violaxanthin and zeaxanthin. The overall high carotenoid content combined with elevated levels of polyphenols and α-tocopherols provides Nannochloropsis with high antioxidant capacities.
NannoPrime and IsoPrime are freeze dried in a way that warrants absence of nutrient leakage, maintenance of the correct lipid profiles and an ensured bioavailability of ω-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acids that are easily taken up by the target species.
Proviron advises IsoPrime as the product of choice for DHA enrichment of rotifers.
