In this study, growth of Nannochloropsis oculata in batch culture was investigated in relation to some physical and chemical factors. For this purpose, batch culture of N. oculata was prepared in sea water and the cultures 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. N. oculata showed better growth in batch culture that was kept under 24 h illumination and 24 h of carbondioxide supply.
