Evaluate the Effect of Using Source of Nitrogen (Soaked Brown Lentils) on Chemical Composition for Marine Microalgae Nannochlorpsis oceanica
Keywords:Amino acids, Fatty acids, Nannochloropsis oceanica, Proximate composition
Microalgae culture media must be efficient, give high growth, meet micro-requirement, and be available. The effect of different levels of brown lentil infusion and use at [25, 50 and 75%] levels on the chemical composition (protein, carbohydrates, fatty acids, and amino acids) in N. oceanic was evaluated. Compared to the standard F/2 Guillard. The obtained results indicated that the chemical components of N. oceanica were affected by these levels. The highest protein and carbohydrate content and the highest EAA content (55.92%) were obtained using OB3 medium (75% SBL) compared to the control group (100% F/2). The highest biomass production was obtained in OB3 medium. The highest TSFA and USFA were recorded for N. oceanica by the OB3 mean.
The present study recommended that it is possible to use microalgae grown on OB3 and OB2 medium as a lipid and protein inducer in aquaculture.
