Ds. were up to 37% of means). abruptly for all species towards the end of March 2003 (Figure 4). The highest productivity occurred in Porphyra sp. with yields of 210 g FW m−2 d−1 and the lowest one in P. tenera with yields of 93 g FW m−2 d−1 (Figure 4). Calculations of average seasonal yield per species as related to tank shapes and volumes are summarized in (Figure 5), and they were based on growth experiments presented in (Figures 2–4). From these calculations one can conclude that the highest yields were obtained in 40 L tanks, while the lowest yields occurred in 24,000 L ponds with 600 L tanks in the mid range of [11] 238 Table 1.
