The possibility of using carbohydrates in order to optimize the cultivation process of the microalga Tisochrysis lutea (Haptophyta) has been studied. The effect of D-galactose, glucose, and sucrose at concentrations of 100 and 200 mg L – 1 on the dynamics of the T. lutea population was studied. It was found that the addition of all the studied carbohydrates stimulated the growth of microalgae; however, sucrose at a concentration of 200 mg L – 1 had the greatest effect.
