Tetraselmis 18%

Nutrition / Phytoplancton



Tetraselmis spp. concentrated golden/brown, flagellated microalgae. Suitable for the nourishment of rotifers, artemia, copepods, crustaceans and bivalve mollusks in their different developmental stages. Large in size (20-30 µm), contains high levels of lipids and essential aminoacids that stimulate feeding in marine animals. 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.

Technical profile:


Destination and Usage Recommendations:

  • Marine teleost larvae: mix 1:1 with Nannochloropsis 18% for rotifer production. Suitable for the enrichment of artemia.
  • Mollusks: we recommend a 1:1 mix with Acuiclam® for the grow-out of oysters, mussels, clams and pectinid juveniles and/or adults.
  • Crustaceans: especially relevant for the prevention of the ‘zoea syndrome'.
