    Hi Kumar
    I hope you have read my blog

    The general assumption for most high value products are that they are valued high as the demand is more than the supply.

    Therefore, one would expect a company like Cyanotech to grow at astonishing rates in terms of sales, sales revenues, profits etc.,
    If you look at quarter on quarter figures for cyanotech, it looks flat. No growth !
    No growth for a company that sells spirulina and Astaxanthin . They sell these as bulk raw materials and as branded products.

    The flat sales, production, profit curve reflects ominously for the investing community.

    If you have read up more on the production methodologies, profitabilities, etc pl do educate us. I am always interested in knowing more especially when it comes to speciality products from algae, cos, i think that is the way out for biomass and biofuel from algae.

    Abomohra used to be interested in Astaxanthin.
    He used to cultivate it. In his lab.
    Ma y be you could invite him for the discussion.

    I am not very well read in that area, but wouldnt mind knowing more about Astaxanthin.

    They are starting with algae nutra and algae pharma and they have all other products including commodity products like bio plastics and biodiesel in their plans.
