This necessitates a complementary strategy to reinforce the existing cultivation system Daily growth rate and expand the global seaweed industry. Present study proposes cultivation of Ulva lactuca in temperature Macroalgae controlled ﬂat panel photobioreactors under natural illumination. Adaptability of U. lactuca to the ﬂat panel Photobioreactor system is apparent through growth studies and photosynthetic performance (F /F ) across individual panels. v m Ulva lactuca Evident eﬀect of annual variation in irradiance on daily growth rates, biomass productivity and composition is portrayed. Signiﬁcance of initial stocking density and harvesting frequency is highlighted. Poultry litter extract was used as an alternative
