- Microalgae are a group of small size and lower plants that can conduct photosynthesis, which are characterized by riching in protein, fat (polyunsaturated fatty acids), polysaccharides, vitamins, antioxidants, pigments, trace elements, etc. Its nutritional value can be comparable to meat, eggs, and even better than the food. Many studies demonstrated that microalgae could be used as feed additives to help promote the growth of aquatic animals and improve their immunity effect in aquaculture and so on. In this paper, the main physiological function of microalgae as well as the applications in aquaculture were reviewed. Hopefully, which could provide some reference value for microalgae used in aquaculture.
