Abstract—Microalgae are sources for aquaculture, health foods, food additives, pharmaceuticals natural colorants and bioenergy. Aquaculture is a fast developing area and microalgal culture is a key procedure in fish hatcheries. Various species are cultivated according to demands of different applications Nevertheless, different species need specific conditions such as light, temperature, and adapted culture medium.
The present study was undertaken to examine effect of myo-inositol on growth of Porphyridium cruentum. Maximum cell densities of control, 100 mg L-1 and 500 mg L-1 groups were found as 101.5±4.5 x 105 cell mL-1, 113±5.4 x 105 cell mL-1, 129.5±12.8 x 105 cell mL-1, respectively. However, no significant difference was found between groups, statistically. Also, mean specific growth rates of control, 100 mgL-1 and 500 mgL-1 groups were calculated as 0.20, 0.21 and 0.22, respectively. This study shows that myo-inositol as an ingredient of medium in microalgae production may provide higher yields.
