Keywords: Extra cellular enzyme | fungal species | Mangrove | driftwood.

The driftwood samples were collected from five different stations such as Chief corner, Koraiyar River, Saradi, Sethukuda, and Xavier Munai of Muthupet mangrove forest. A total number of 23 fungal species coming under 11 genera were isolated from the drift woods. The common and dominant driftwood associated ten marine fungus were selected and grown in seven different culture media. The fungus showed higher growth in SWPDA medium. Screening of extracellular enzyme production (amylase, protease, cellulase, pectinlyase, and lipase) by the selected driftwoods associated fungi on was carried out by plate assay method.
