Abstract: Present study was aimed to estimate the growth, biomass and lipid production in Nannochloropsis sp. cultured under different culture mediums, pH and salinities. Nannochloropsis sp. (PSDK11) were isolated from Muthukuda mangrove water, Southeast coast of India and cultured in different mediums like Conway’s, F/2, Miquel’s, Schreiber’s and TMRL, different pH conditions viz. 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0 8.5, under different salinities  viz; 26, 28, 30, 32 and 34psu (practical salinity unit) for 18 days. Higher growth (0.721abs), biomass (8.0 g L-1) and lipid production (19.12%) were achieved in Conway’s medium, at 7.5 pH and 30psu of salinity.
