Microalgae Culture Workshop and Webinar

To address interest in microalgae culture and techniques for molluscan shellfish hatcheries, a two-day workshop is being held on June 5-6, 2019 in Cedar Key. Dr. Gary Wikfors, Director of the NOAA Fisheries Laboratory in Milford, Connecticut, will lead presentations and hands-on demonstrations addressing the following topics: microalgae function, mass culture strategies, bivalve nutrition, chemical ecology of cultures, phytoplankton as bivalve foods, media preparation and aseptic transfers, and quantification methods. The workshop is co-hosted by Dr. Huiping Yang and Leslie Sturmer of the University of Florida/IFAS Molluscan Shellfish Aquaculture Program with funding provided through the NOAA National Sea Grant College Program.
