This enriched seawater medium is based upon the f/2 medium recipe (Guillard and Ryther 1962) with additional trace metals. It is a good general-purpose marine medium for growing coastal algae and ocean phytoplankton. The kit components are enough to make 1000L of L1 growth medium.

Note: Of L1 and f/2, the NCMA uses only L1 for strains in the collection.
