There are roughly a bazzillion species of algae, each with their own pro's and con's. All of them produce lipids (oil) and a hand full are edible. The trick is to isolate and culture the right one in the right conditions. Try the Aquatic Species Program. They studied a bunch of algae types. Several companies provide a host of reactor types and could probably provide information over food safe algae. Always remember Google is your friend!

Spirulina is an edible algae that is widely available. Like most algae it contains lipids (vat) which can be converted into cooking oil.

My point was that there are a whole lot of algae that would fit the bill so go with what you can get and what you can process. Be aware howver that processing algae is no simple task and is likely to require some serious trial and error before you get any decent oil. Good luck though.

If you spell "algae" correctly, you will get better hits on search engines.

You have tried search engines, haven't you ...?
