Growth of Chlorella salina was studied in different salinities (10, 20, 30 and 40 ppt), PH (6.0 - 10.0) and dilutions (100-400 ml). Maximum growth was observed at 40 ppt after 35 days, at PH 10 after 5 1 days and at 300 ml after 34 days of inoculation. The experiments were conducted for 60 days under controlled conditions. At PH 8, 9 and 10, C. salina shows two growth peaks, one after 16-24 days and the other after 42-54 days of inoculation whereas at PH 6 and 7, it records one growth peak after 16-19 days of inoculation. This shows that C. salina can adjust to a wide range of salinity and PH.
