    Abstract
    Controlled nitrate feeding strategies to fed‐batch cultures of microalgae were applied for the enhancement of lipid production and microalgal growth rates. In particular, in this study, the effect of nitrate feeding rates on lipid and biomass productivities in fed‐batch cultures of Nannochloropsis gaditana were investigated using three feeding modes and under two light variations on both lipid productivity and fatty acid compositions. Higher nitrate levels negatively affected lipid production in the study. Increasing the light intensity increased the lipid contents of the...
