    One of the main problem is the deficiency of water around the world which causes drought as well as vanishing natural resources, thereby this phenomenon has converted to the dearth of forage, animal feed, and destroying inhabitants, and it also is the major problem in fishery, domesticated animals, and poultry. Moreover, deficiency of protein sources, increasing population growth and high protein content of microbial cells have led to the utilization of other protein sources derived from microorganisms (as feed and food) rather than common protein sources. Single cell protein (SCP) is a microbial protein that is fermented by various microorganisms (bacteria, yeasts, fungi, or algae) on low-cost substrates like sulfate and industrial effluents and sewage, cellulose waste from paper mills, polishing, rice, beet pulp, molasses, bagasse, sugarcane, dairy industry waste (such as whey), agr..
