Cost Effective Cultivation of Spirulina platensis by Using Fish Waste Hydrolysate

Cost Effective Cultivation of Spirulina platensis by Using Fish Waste Hydrolysate

The greatest problem in the world today is Global Food Protein Shortage. So, there is an urgent need
to find other protein sources. The best potential is seen in Single Cell Protein i.e. Spirulina platensis.
The purpose of this study was to assess the growth, biomass, and other useful compounds (Protein,
Chl-a, Chl-b, Carotenoids Phycocyanin) of Spirulina on cost effective alternative medium i.e. Fish
Waste Hydrolysate (FH) medium and Zarrouk’s medium (ZM) was used as standard. This study
showed better growth rate, biomass (protein content), high level of chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b
content, carotenoid, phycocyanin pigment production of Spirulina cultivated in Fish Waste Hydrolysate
medium. It is suggested that FH medium could be used as the alternative and cheap medium than
standard medium ZM.
