The effect of EM-Bokashi medium on the marine micro alga Tetraselmis suecica reared in the laboratory was studied. Two nutritive media were used: Yashima medium was used as a control treatment and the other medium had organic components coming from EM-Bokashi which is a fertilizing product. The latter was inoculated in three different doses: 1:1000; 1:1500; 1:2000. The highest population growth was obtained with EM-Bokashi and the probiotic microorganisms contained in this medium together with Tetraselmis suecica micro alga had a synergic effect in reducing the concentration of heterotrophic microorganisms present in the culture. The results showed that EM-Bokashi was more efficient than Yashima because it promoted population growth, improved environmental quality and presented less production costs, which arose to 98.8 % less than the control medium.
