 In order to achieve selenium enrichment in Spirulina maxima, the effects of different amounts and strategies for selenium addition on the growth of S. maxima as indicated by biomass and selenium concentration were explored. The addition of 100μL of 100 μg/mL Na2SeO3 at the same time each day for 8 consecutive days after 1 day of growth in Se-free environment was found optimal, resulting in a biomass of 0.903g/L and an organic Se content of 1413.168 μg/g dry S . maxima.

Key words: Spirulina maxima, selenium addition amount, selenium addition mode, biomass, organic selenium content
