Introduction: Tetraselmis chuii

What is Tetraselmis chuii?

Tetraselmis chuii is a green algae and has a high photosynthesis power and can produce high amounts of oxygen. The energy used for photosynthesis is produced by the algae from water and sunlight. Tetraselmis chuii is only a few micrometers in size and has a round / oval shape. Due to the chloroplasts, which are important for photosynthesis, the algae appears green. Tetraselmis chuii is commonly used in aquatic systems and aquaculture as a food plant for marine animals and other algae. 

Where does Tetraselmis chuii grow?

Tetraselmis chuii grows in fresh and brackish water areas worldwide and is commonly found in nature, especially in tropical and subtropical regions. Tetraselmis chuii can not only grow in seawater, but can grow in a variety of aquatic environments, including rivers, lakes, and ponds. The algae can also be grown in closed systems such as algae tanks or in laboratories. To this end, Tetraselmis chuii is commonly used in aquatic systems and aquaculture to produce food plants for marine animals and other algae.

What nutrients has Tetraselmis chuii?

Tetraselmis chuii contains many important nutrients, making it a valuable source of nutrients for the human body. High amounts of proteins, for building and repairing cells, many fibers for the function of the digestive system, as well as many important vitamins, such as vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E. 

Tetraselmis chuii also has abundant minerals such as potassium, magnesium calcium and a good supplier of omega-3 fatty acids, important for the cardiovascular system and chlorophyll, which benefits plant growth and photosynthesis.

What are properties of Tetraselmis chuii algae?

The small size and its ability to photosynthesize, as well as its adaptability to a wide range of environmental conditions, characterize the Tetraselmis chuii algae. It is found in many worlds and is thus able to live in both fresh and saltwater. For humans and animals, the green algae is an important source of food and is thus often used in aquaculture and in the aquarium industry. Due to its interesting biological properties, such as the ability to remove toxins from the environment, the microlage takes an important role in biotechnology and biomedicine.

For which uses is Tetraselmis chuii suitable?

The green algae is, as already mentioned, often used in aquatic systems of aquaculture to produce food plants for other algae and marine animals.  

Tetraselmis chuii is also used in the cosmetic industry, as its ingredients lend themselves very well to the production of products such as shampoo, face masks, nutritional supplements, etc. 

So the food industry also benefits from the green algae, thanks to the food supplements the body is supplied with important nutrients.

Typical applications

Tetraselmis is mainly used for pet food in the field of aquaristics because of its wide range of important and useful ingredients that benefit the animals.
but can also be used for food.

However, the possibilities are not limited only by aquaristics, quite the contrary, Tetraselmis can also be used as food for humans and is very healthy. Furthermore, because of the antioxidant substances it contains, it can also protect the skin from free radicals, i.e. external influences.

An example for the use of Tetraselmis in aquaristics is OceanMagik from Algae Barn.
