    This article describes astaxanthin production methods and the latest research progress of the biological activity.It summarizes the current industry processing and techniques,such as the extraction from aquatic byproducts,pluvialis algae and Phaffia yeast.Haematococcus pluvialis is the most ideal biogenetic derivation because of the highest natural astaxanthin.Astaxanthin biological activity and applications,such as anti—oxidation,anti—inflammatory,anti—infective,anti—tumor,anti—fatigue,prevention of osteoporosis were also introduced.Pharmacology and toxicology study shows that astaxanthin not only can be used as the bait additives in aquatic farming,but also has a wide application in food,drugs,cosmetics,and high value nutritional health products,so it has great market potential.Finally,the article made summary and outlook of using H.pluvialis to produce astaxathin,which has great meanings for the further study of H.pluvialis.
