PERSPECTIVES ON MARINE PHYTOPLANKTON AS SOURCES OF NUTRITION AND BIOENERGY $100.00
Authors:  Y. Li, J.G. Qin, A. S. Ball and R. B. Moore
Abstract:
Marine phytoplankton cells are invisible to the human eye but they have important
economic applications for humans. Through photosynthesis, phytoplankton are able to
convert carbon dioxide and inorganic nutrients into usable organic compounds such as
vitamins, protein, fatty acids and carbohydrates. With recent research progress in algal
biotechnology, marine phytoplankton have become increasingly important as feedstocks
for industrial processing applications due to their fast growth and their novel products. As
a result, increasing numbers of entrepreneurs are exploring and investing in marine
phytoplankton as sources of food additives, pharmaceuticals, therapeutics and bioenergy.
This chapter reviews recent advances in the use of marine microalgae for these
applications and explores their current status and their potential in the near term.
