Nannochloropsis 18%

Nutrition / Phytoplancton



Nannochloropsis oculata concentrated green microalgae. Suitable for the nourishment of rotifers, artemia, copepods, mussels in their different developmental phases and green water systems. Small in size (1-3 µm), contains high levels of PUFAs (EPA, DHA, ARA). Produced and packed in sterile conditions, it ensures a complete nutrition, enhancing growth and the vitality of the cultivar. Allows for the reduction in operational costs by diminishing on-site microalgae production requirements, and makes year-round larval production feasible.

Destination and Usage Recommendations:

  • Rotifers and Brine shrimp: add 1mL Nannochloropsis 18% to feed 250K rotifers/day.
  • DHA's enrichment: mix 12 parts Isochrysis 6% with 1 part Nannochloropsis 18%. One mL of the mix will feed 80K to 120K type L rotifers/day. Type S and type SS rotifers will require a lower quantity of microalgae.
  • Green water systems: add 11 mL Nannochloropsis 18% per m3 and day. We recommend the supply of microalgae several times a day (>6) in order to ensure their constant consumption by the cultivar.
