Description: Isochrysis galbana is a species of Haptophyta. It is the type species of the genus Isochrysis. It is an outstanding food for various bivalve larvae and is now widely cultured for use in the bivalve aquaculture industry. This unicellular is investigated for its high amount of Fucoxanthin (18.23 mg/g dried sample).
Description: Isochrysis galbana. Isochrysis galbana is another marine microalga with a high content of both soluble and insoluble fibers, and it is promising as a prebiotic, since the numbers of lactic-acid bacteria (LAB) increased in the feces of the rats treated with I. galbana (Nuño et al., 2013). From: Comprehensive Foodomics, 2021. Related terms: Phytoplankton
Description: Isochrysis galbana could grow successfully in mixotrophic culture. The optimal glycerol concentration to support the mixotrophic growth of I. galbana was 50 mmol glycerol. The growth of I. galbana under mixotrophic conditions was better than its growth under phototrophic conditions but the growth rate was inhibited in heterotrophy.
Description: Isochrysis is a genus of haptophytes. It includes the species Isochrysis galbana, Isochrysis litoralis and Isochrysis maritima. The genus Isochrysis also contains Tisochrysis lutea. It is a brown-golden marine microalga. T. lutea is a flagellated microalgae with ovoid shape, measuring 4 to 6 μm in diameter. It is equipped with two flagelles thanks to which it moves according to a helical movement.

Description: The species of algae in the Isochrysis genus belong to the group of Haptophytes, the golden-brown algae. Like most Haptophytes, they contain the pigment fucoxanthin, giving them their golden hue. Isochrysis includes I. maritima, I. litoralis, and Tisochrysis lutea (previously known as I. galbana).
Description: galbana (T-ISO) and Pavlova salina are the two best-known examples of Haptophyta used as feed microalgae in aquaculture. All haptophytes contain one or two pyrenoid-containing chloroplast(s) and an antapical nucleus with the nuclear envelope being continuous with the chloroplast ER and a peripheral ER underneath the plasma membrane ( Edvardsen et al., 2000 ).

Description: In contrast to crops, there are few studies using LED-based light with microalgae and none cultivating the microalga Isochrysis aff. galbana (T-ISO) despite its importance to marine aquaculture.
