Typical applications

Skeletonema (also known as Skeletonema custatum) is part of the major algae group of Diatoms. It is a microalgae that can tolerate a wide variety of light regimes and temperatures.

Due to it's richness in Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA), Skeletonema finds its perfect use in aquaculture.

It is ideal for the development of live prey, such as Rotifers and Artemia and it contributes for the exoskeleton formation of prawn and mollusc larvae.

Skeletonema is also used as a raw material for bioactives extractions with antioxidant, anti-aging and sun care properties.

Besides these properties and a high amount of EPA, Skeletonema shows a considerable amount of Vitamin A, Amino acids, Calcium, Carotenoids and Silicates.
