Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the growth of juvenile Mytilus galloprovincialis fed with microalgae produced by wastewater, as well as to validate the nutritional quality of this production. The microalgae (Tetraselmis suecica and Isocrysis galbana) were produced with a culture medium obtained by the outflow of a rotating biological contactor (RBC) installed in a pilot aquaculture wastewater plant. The RBC system allows a suitable wastewater treatment to transform waste in a medium for algae biomass production. The cultivated algae can be used as a valuable feed (additive or substitutive) for mussel growth in marine aquaculture. The molluscs growth did not shown significant differences between control and experimental group fed with wastewater-cultivated microalgae.
