I'd like to know what types of chemical flocculants are used for algae harvesting using saline water?

the higher the salinity the more chemical is needed (up to 5 times compared to freshwater species)..
For the case of marine species Chlorella stigmatophora and Isochrysis galbana, 60 mg/liter and over 100 mg/liter are required respectively..
