In the last few decades, aquaculture is a fast growing sector. Increasing requirements for protein and high cost of fishmeal, has led to use new alternatives as animal and plant source of additives in aquaculture. In aquaculture industry, fishmeal is the first preferred protein source of nutrition. Decreasing fishmeal supply, contributing to the variable cost, threaten the sustainability and growth of the aquculture industry. Microalgal biomass has gained importance and its use is extending in several areas such as bioremediation, aquaculture, nutraceutical research, renewable energy and biomolecule sources. In recent decades, microalgae are used as alternative protein ingredient replacing fishmeal. Microalgae have a good profile of nutrient composition and have gained popularity due to their appropriate size, high growth rate, resistance to diseases and antioxidant activity. Microalgae used frequently in feeding are Scenedesmus, Chlorella, Pavlova, Tetraselmis and Chaetoceros sp. In the present study, the importance of microalgae for aquculture was compiled to take more attention due to the species that are valuable additive in feeding as an alternative nutrition source.
