- ... Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) systems typically rely on macroalgae to maintain water quality for fed and extractive species. Macroalgae harvested from these systems can in turn be used as feed source for these species. This study evaluated the use of harvested Ulva lactuca from a land-based IMTA system as a partial replacement (25, 50%) or a supplement (25%) to a commercial shrimp di ...
