Abstract In 2007, the project ‘Zeeuwse Tong’ (Zeeland Sole) was founded with support of the province of Zeeland, the Netherlands. The aim of the Zeeuwse Tong project was to establish an innovative land-based integrated multi-trophic aquaculture sector, which is producing sole, ragworms, algae, shellfish and saline crops in close harmony with nature. The project was divided into two sub-projects: The integrated saline aquaculture farm and the integrated nursery. The research described in this thesis resides within the integrated nursery subproject. In this project the rearing of fingerlings of sole would be combined with the cultivation of microalgae as feed for shellfish larvae and spat inside a greenhouse. An integrated nursery in a greenhouse has several advantages: a greenhouse with a multipurpose use of space, sole culture combined with the cultivation of microalgae and shellfish larvae or spat, an integrated thermoregulation and the reuse of nutrients from the wastewater of the fish basins for the production of microalgae in closed photobioreactors (PBRs). For this thesis, a horizontal tubular PBR needed to be designed and constructed to investigate the productivity and yield of microalgae applied as feed for shellfish larvae or spat, within the context of an integrated nursery.
