Isochrysis aff. galbana “Tahitian strain” is a marine microalga selected for its high content of ω-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acids (esp. DHA)
Isochrysis aff. galbana “Tahitian strain” produced at Proviron accumulates high levels of the ω-3 poly-unsaturated fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) present in a readily bioavailable form.
Isochrysis is also a rich source of carotenoids such as β-carotene, diadinoxanthin and fucoxanthin. The overall high carotenoid content combined with elevated levels of polyphenols and α -tocopherols provides Isochrysis with high antioxidant capacities.
Isochrysis are the algae of choice for DHA enrichment of rotifers.
Isochrysis is an essential feed for bivalve larviculture and performs well in fish larviculture as a Green Water Treatment.
