Microalgae have the various function with positive health effects. For not only human beings, but also its potentiality has important roles for aquaculture system. Microalgae provide the essential fatty acids namely PUFAs. The long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) with two most important parts; Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is well known for essential nutrition in aquaculture. This review was examined the DHA and EPA function, DHA and EPA contained in microalgae, and value-added microalgae as PUFA fed source in aquaculture. The future directions of microalgae-assisted aquaculture for industrial applications were suggested.Pages: 39-41 | 495 Views 48 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
