In this study, growth of Isochrysis galbana in batch algal culture was investigated in relation to some physical and chemical factors. For this purpose, batch culture of I. galbana was prepared in sea water and were 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. I. galbana showed better growth in the culture that was kept under 12 h illumination and 24 h of carbondioxide supply.
