      Growth ofSpirulina platensis, a fast growing blue-green alga, was studied in domestic raw sewage under laboratory conditions. The results show that growingSpirulina platensis in domestic raw sewage with proper manipulation is encouraging. Apart from waste water treatment,Spirulina platensis can also be used as food and feed for cattle and poultry due to its high protein content i.e. 68% and its easy cell wall breakability as compared to other algal species and better digestibility.
