A study on the growth of Phorphyridium cruentum and P. aerugineum was conducted under laboratory condition. Objective of this study was to find out the optimum growth of Phorphyridium under various salinities. Culture medium used in this research was Guillard F/2 in 2.2 l of culture bottles with continuous lighting. Results show that the optimum salinity for growth of P. aerugineum and P. cruentum were 5 and 24 ppt, respectively.
