This research of mixotrophic microalgae Isochrysis 3011 with glycerol was combined with the treatment of aqua-cultural wastewater, different initial concentrations, and optimized light intensities. The algae growth rate, removal efficiencies of total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) were determined. Results showed that the suitable initial concentration was 0.4 g L−1, and the optimum light intensity was 60 µmol m−2 s−1. The growth of the mixotrophic group was better than that of the autotrophic culture. The biomass yield of the mixotrophic group with glycerol was 0.17 g L−1 d−1, and the removal rates of TN and TP were 73.39% and 95.61%, respectively. The content of total lipid and total protein in mixotrophic group were higher than the values of the autotrophic group. This indicates that aquaculture wastewater treatment with mixotrophic bait microalgae can obtain superior micro-algal biomass, which is also a potential technology for wastewater utilization and ecological protection.
