In an effort to minimize enteric methanogenesis, nutritional additives for ruminants have been explored, and aquatic macroalgae have shown especially promising, e. g. , the incorporation of 0. 2% dry matter of the red alga A. taxiformis into cow feed decreased in vivo methane production by approximately 98%. Thus, if worldwide applied, the addition of algae in ruminant diet regimens might change the management of greenhouse gas emissions across the livestock market. Complying with the concept that in the intimate and close connections between algae-hosts and their microbiota the origin of chemical response mechanisms is usually unclear, which substances originally designated to algae have formerly been revealed to originate from host-associated microorganisms, it is not unreasonable to believe that these might be associated with the antimethanogenic impacts of marine algae in the rumen.
