Abstract
    The food value of three cultures of P.tricornutum composed of three different cell forms was measured for the larvae of the bivalve molluscs O.edulis and C.gigas. While all three types supported good growth of both species of larvae, there were no significant differences in food value between the three and the Isochrysis galbana controls. Increasing the feeding rate of one type of P.tricornutum culture had no marked effect on the growth rates, survival or settlement of C.gigas larvae in the range equivalent in terms of dry weight to 25-200 cells I.galbana/ µl.
