Microalgae are a wide group of photosynthetic heterotrophic organisms consisting of vital amino acids, protein, minerals, vitamins, chlorophylls and some forms of antioxidants and bioactive substances (Yamaguchi, 1996; Kwaket al., 2012). According to Takeuchiet al. (2002), microalgae are valuable in aquaculture and have been utilized as live feeds for larval or juvenile crustaceans and finfish, for all bivalve mollusks including oysters, scallops, clams and mussels and as a feed for zooplankton in aquaculture.
