Other Media | The Fish Site: Antarctic microalgae may form new component of salmon feed

Monday, September 19, 2022

The microalgae species was isolated by doctoral student Claudio Rivas, who is studying aquaculture sciences at Chile’s Austral University. Rivas learned that C. reticulata can produce larger than expected volumes of astaxanthin (an average of 2.5 percent of its weight).

Rivas and his colleagues in the FONDEF IDaA i+D research project are hoping to produce the microalgae at scale, allowing the naturally derived astaxanthin to be incorporated in salmon aquafeed.
