In this study, growth of C. vulgaris in batch culture was investigated in relation to some physical and chemical factors. For this purpose, culture medium for C. vulgaris was prepared in sea water and the culture was kept under four combinations of light regime and carbondioxide supply. Three salinity levels, 25, 30 and 35%o S were employed. Growth of the alga in culture varied with respect to number of individuals and size of maxima under different culture conditions. C. vulgaris showed better growth in culture that was kept in 25%o salinity under 24 h illumination and 24 h of carbondioxide supply.
