Abstract
    The importance of iron and manganese for the growth of the blue diatom Haslea ostrearia was studied using an enrichment bioassay method. The bioassays were set up using a culture medium chemically similar to the oyster pond waters supporting the diatom. A mixture of iron and manganese provided the optimum conditions for the algal growth: the number of cells produced during the exponential growth phase was higher than in the presence of either individual metal. The daily growth rate was also greater when metals were present in combination.
