The present study is concerned with the selection of organism and optimization of culture media for algal biomass production. Samples of different species of algae were collected and identified from different areas of Lahore. The rate of growth of these algal species was compared in A-Z medium. It was found that the rate of biomass production of all the species was increased with increase in time. However, Spirogyra exhibited maximum production of algal biomass in 15 days of incubation. Different culture media, including A-Z media, Bristol’s media and Bristol’s soil media were employed for mass production. Among them, Bristol’s soil media was found the best media, as it supplied maximum production of algal biomass (10.5g/L). Moreover, the production of biomass was reached optimum after 14 days of incubation in Bristol’s soil media.
