Abstract

The present invention relates to a method for obtaining algal biomass, a system for obtaining algal biomass and a cultivation medium for cultivating algae. The method comprises the step of culturing algae in a culturing medium having a pH above 8 such that lipid accumulation and/or carbohydrate accumulation is increased, wherein the medium is a saline medium. Preferably, the pH of the medium is in the range of 8-11, preferably 8.5-11, more preferably 9-11 and most preferably 10-11.
