Gracilaria edulis and G.crassa were subjected to different salinities such as 15, 25, 35 and 45 ppt in the growth chamber in controlled environmental condition. The effects of salinities on photosynthetic activities, absorption spectrum and the pigment constituents were recorded. The Photosynthetic activity (Pmax) reduced in all the treatments, when the plants were removed from the natural habitat.
