Algae culture is a type of aquaculture that involves the cultivating of species of algae. Most of the algae that is purposely farmed comes under the classification of microalgae; it can also be called as phytoplankton.

Macroalgae, which is generally referred to as seaweed, is also very helpful for commercial and industrial purposes, but owing to their size and necessary habitat they are not as willing to the farming on such a large basis as microalgae and are generally obtained wild from the water bodies.

When farming algae, factors like temperature, nutrition, light etc must be taken under consideration.

One can culture algae in raceway type ponds, which is a method using natural means or in a photo bioreactor which involves an artificial light source.
