Algae as a fish food and pH modifier.

Algae creates alkalinity in the water. In fact, when we take a side stream of aquaponic water to our cells of aquaponics the pH rises up to range of 9-10 very quickly. We also raise algae with human urine, but if using as aquaponic fish food and ultimately for plants, care must be taken that … Continue reading

Feeding Plankton, Zooplanton and Insect Larvae to Tilapia and Crawfish.

This video shows how algae and zooplankton are harvested from algae containers each day. With a bucket and strainer, a fresh slurry of oxygen rich plant matter is scooped up along with zooplankton, insect eggs and larval that live in the algae tank. This is poured into the tank and meticulously consumed by fish and … Continue reading

Locally produced fish food: Grow your own plankton and zooplankton.

Here is a simple project for raising algae that is practical, as a tabletop exercise, for high school education labs. Growing in this fashion is similar to the process of high tech bioreactors and various tube systems commonly used in the biotech industry. Researchers feed algae with CO2 from combusted exhaust emissions, a method which holds great promise … Continue reading

Algae Video Overview; Russel Chapman

It’s a bit of a long intro so if you fast forward 5.5 minutes you’ll cut to the chase. This is an informative overview of algae; its origin, structure and phylogy. Delivered by Russel Chapman at Scripps Oceanograpy along wiht his his humorous affection for algal species. It’s a bit of a long intro so if you fast forward 5.5 minutes … Continue reading

Taking lessons from Earth’s most successful living organism, Algae.

Sometimes I just don’t get why it is our most natural abundant resources have been ignored and replaced with hyped-up store-bought empty substitutes? Algae is awesome! But only since the latest rush towards biofuel has it gained appreciation in green technology as a source of fat and oil for energy production. While there remains a considerable energy-requiring process to convert … Continue reading

Creating Biochar, Farming Algae; A dynamic duo that combined gives a superior growth media for plants.

Having studied pond fertilization, as practiced in China, it is clear to me that algal growth can be enhanced through the controlled application of organic plant matter to algal pond water. And as a plus, the carbon waste decomposes under water and is sequestered by algae before it escapes into the atmosphere. Instead of creating … Continue reading
