Dunaliella salina is a saltwater micro-algae capable of producing high levels of lipids. These lipids are used as a food source for the sustainable aquaculture market. The purpose of this research is to determine how to optimize the growth of D. salina using chicken waste as a cost-effective means of providing nutrients for lipid production. Lumens ratings of 450-5000 were used to grow D. salina. Algal growth and chlorophyll content were measured under these conditions. Once a suitable light intensity for growth has been determined, future work will focus on measuring lipid production as chicken waste levels are changed.
