Application to reinforce the immunity of Daphnia and to use them as bio filters to improve water quality of aquatic ecosystems

Pub Date: 2019-03-14

Pub Number: US20190077685

This invention is about how to create a principle water natural-filters, such as Daphnia with reinforced resistance to pathogen and toxic microorganisms, by using Haematococcus pluvialis, as its dietary. Astaxanthin is a key carotenoid of Haematococcus pluvialis sustaining the tolerance of Daphnia to gain immunity to toxic algae and pathogen bacteria. Due to obtained resistance, Daphnia can survive even in waters with high content of pathogen bacteria and algal toxins and filter higher volume of water. This cannot be achieved with any other technologies by now without need in chemicals (bactericides and algaecides). In this conditions Daphnia, especially new-born offsprings, get intoxicated and die, which disrupts natural self-cleaning capacity of aquatic ecosystem. As an indirect effect pre-treated and resistant Daphnia reduce odor effect of the aquatic ecosystems due to elimination of the odor compounds producing bacteria and algae.
