Abstract: Asparagopsis delilei (= A.taxiformis) grows from August to May in the Mandapam region. The plants attain maximum growth during January-February, when seawater temperature and salinity values are low (27 ᵒ - 28 ᵒ C and 27 - 32 x 10 -3. Spermatangial plants occur earlier (maximum in January) than cystocarpic plants (maximum in May). Falkenbergia phase grows in all months except October and November, and produces tetraspores in March-April. In conclusion, seasonality in occurrence of the 2 phases of the alga, and correlation of its biomass with the environmental factors such as salinity and temperature of seawater are observed.
