Abstract: <span style="font-size:11.0pt;font-family: " times="" new="" roman";mso-fareast-font-family:"times="" roman";mso-bidi-font-family:="" mangal;mso-ansi-language:en-gb;mso-fareast-language:en-us;mso-bidi-language:="" hi"="" lang="EN-GB">Present study consists the, effect of temperature (10-30<sup>o</sup>C), salinity (15-35 psu) and biofilm on the settlement of <i>Enteromorpha flexousa</i> zoospores. Settlement of zoospores was significantly (<i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">p<</i>0.05) influenced by both temperature and salinity. Highest percentage of settlement occurred at 25<sup>o</sup>C and 30 psu respectively. Subsequently the influence of biofilm was evaluated at the optimum 25<sup>o</sup>C and 30 psu culture conditions. Among these, the glass cover slip substratum preconditioned with biofilm facilitated higher settlement<i>.</i><span style="mso-bidi-font-style:italic"> Highest spore settlement occurred in the first 30 minutes of incubation and further increase was gradual with time until it reached the optimum. </span></span>
