A laboratory scale prototype of a novel tube called AlgaTube™ (patent pending) was evaluated for growth of Arthrospira platensis (commonly referred to as Spirulina) in a controlled, 10-day batch trial at low light intensity. The two cultures (control and prototype) were grown in identical...
To increase the sustainability of industrial wastewater treatment, biological sorbents have been explored for the removal of potentially toxic elements (PTEs). Algae are particularly attractive biosorbents due to their high concentration of negatively charged extracellular binding sites....
Microalgal cultivation by small scale aquaculture farmers is limited by the high cost of synthetic culture media. The current study was conducted to investigate use of banana stem compost extract (BSCE) as an alternative medium for cultivation of the microalga Chlorella vulgaris. C. vulgaris was...
Kelp aquaculture is typically a two-stage process, with an indoor nursery phase and a grow-out phase at sea. For the successful development and implementation of commercial kelp aquaculture, production of viable seeded lines in the nursery is essential. This study investigated optimal nursery...
Petroleum pollution can upset the ecological stability and health of a marine ecosystem. The physiological, biochemical and morphological responses of Nannochloropsis oculata and Porphyridium cruentum to three different petroleum fuels, kerosene, diesel and gasoline were examined. The effect of...
Macrocystis pyrifera is a foundation species that creates kelp forests and supports essential ecosystem services across coastal environments. Over the past half-century, more than 95% of giant kelp forests have declined around Tasmania, Australia, due to climate change, causing a near-complete...
