The oil yield of many microalgae species varies. Therefore, the selection of algae species is important. Features that are effective in selecting the appropriate species for algae production are growth and productivity, minimum contamination, and easy harvesting. However, the percentages of carbohydrate, fat, and protein in the structure of algae provide preliminary information about the oil yield to be obtained from that algae species.

Keywords: Algae types, Biofuel production, Macro-algae.
