Micro and Macro Algae (FINALGA) Database

 

This database was designed to hold comparable information on one of the most sustainable resources in the world: algae. Algae are autotrophs or mixotrophs, meaning they all possess the ability to harvest sunlight for energy like terrestrial plants. Many single cell and more complex, multicellular alga exhibit rapid generation times and growth rates. These abilities make algae an ideal candidate as a sustainable feed supplement.

In the database, promising species of algae are listed and reviewed for nutrient content, market value, availability, and ecological information. The goal of this dataset is to give aquaculture feed designers and producers more information on fish alternatives and where they can be purchased.
