Abstract

Studies were made on salinity tolerance and acclimatization of 13 economically important red, brown and green algae at different salinities ranging from 5 to 55%. Caulerpa rocemosa degenerated after 3 days in all these salinities. Hypnea valentiae tolerated a wide saliniiy range of 15 to 45% and Gracilaria crassa and Acanthophora spicifera from 15 to 55%. All other algae tolerated only 25 and 35%. Experiments conducted on salinity acclimatization showed that A.spicifera could be acclimatized at the salinities from 55 to 15% and all other algae from 55 to 25% except C. racemosa.
