Algae as antioxidants and effective fish feed


Priyanka Mukherjee* and Ruma Pal

The oxidative stress in the body of an organism whether plant or animal leads to the production of several reactive oxygen and reactive nitrogen species abbreviated as ROS and RNS respectively. Algae, because of the presence of various biochemical compounds can act as a potent antioxidative agent and can thrive against the stressful conditions produced due to the oxidative stress. These secondary metabolites are high value compounds which can be efficiently used in the field of aquaculture as feed for different fishes. Thus in this review we have discussed the various compounds isolated from algae which allows the algal life to thrive in high oxidative stress as well as we have discussed different potential algal genera being used as feed for different fishes.
