Fresh Water Algae as a Potential Source of Bioactive Compounds for Aquaculture and Significance of Solvent System in Extraction of Antimicrobials
J. Prarthana and K.R. Maruthi

Abstract:
Algae are very important component of aquatic ecosystem, often seen growing at warmer temperature. The biomass constituents varies with available nutrient supply but algae are known for producing several biologically active compounds with antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anticancer activities. The extraction of bio active compounds differs according to the nature of solvent used. Phenolic compounds get extracted in polar solvent with differing yield, flavonoids in non-polar solvents, method of extraction such as soxhlet extraction yields heat stable components, where as cold extraction yields various lipid. In the present study investigation of the effect of different solvents, with increasing order of polarity on fresh water algae to develop alternative biodegradable natural compounds that are more environmentally acceptable alternate to antibiotics for aquaculture.
