Abstract: Actinomycetes were isolated from skin, gills and gut contents of estuarine fish, <i style="">Chanos chanos </i>using Kuster’s agar medium. Out of 20 strains tested, the strain LG-10 which was tentatively identified as <i style="">Streptomyces rimosus</i> showed L-glutaminase activity. Optimum production of L-glutaminase enzyme (17.51 IU/ml) was observed after 96 h of incubation at 27° C, <i style="">p</i>H 9 and glucose and malt extract as carbon and nitrogen sources, respectively. The present study indicated scope for the use of <i style="">S. rimosus </i>as an ideal organism for the industrial production of extracellular L-glutaminase.
