AlgaGen has been working with microalgae and live feeds since 2002. We were the first to offer a wide assemblage of copepods to the market. We culture Tisbe, Pseudodiaptomus, Parvoclanus, Euterpina, Apocyclops, and Acartia. Our production initially went to many of the public aquariums such as New England Aquarium, Georgia Aquarium, Shedd Aquarium, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Dallas World Aquarium, Tennessee Aquarium, Steinhart, Long Beach, Columbus Zoo, Aquarium La Rochelle (France), New Caladonia (Aquarium des Lagons), Aquarium du Quebec and Aquarium Smithsonian, countless Universities, marine stations and oceanic institutes such as Woods Hole, Harbor Branch Oceanic Institute, Stanford Marine station. We even sold cultures to Exxon.
Our Live Feeds have been used to feed a whale shark, jellyfish, pompano, pygmie seahorse, leafy pipe fish, leafy sea dragons, blue fin tuna, ballyhoo, cobia, grouper, conspiculatus angels, dragonettes, Redii seahorses, lookdowns, cod, sea bass, snook, purple tangs, yellow tangs, anthias, shrimp larvae, clams, oysters, Geoduck, scallops, sun ray clams, mussels, tridacnid clams, sponges, corals, copepods, amphipods, crabs, etc
We found that there is an industrial need for Live feeds but also one for the home hobbyist and because of this we created AlgaGen Direct. At AlgaGen Direct we are offering the same hi-quality that these groups trust but grouped slightly differently to address the needs of the home aquarist.
