Mangrove ecosystem are known for their diverse and rich microbiota. Here human influence is limited, so novelty in bacterial diversity is more common as mangroves ecosystem comes under conservative area and human interference in restricted here. In this present study, mangrove sample like mangrove associated Soil, Coastal water, Roots were collected from Borivali coastal area of manori creek and Jhow Island, Maharashtra under prior permission from CCF, Mangrove Cell, Maharashtra government. Halophiles are in demand in many Biotech based company and their enzymes are equally in demand due their properties. Here in the present experiment, with the help of enriched media 30 samples were processed from which 8 samples were from Jhow Island and 22 samples from borivali coastal-line. All the samples were screened with 10% salt and 20% salt concentration (NaCl). Sample were also screened for 7 pH and 9 pH growth parameters from Borivali and Jhow Island respectively. From above mention samples, total 62 Isolates were obtained, which were screened for Bio-Industrially important enzymes like Amylase, Protease and Cellulase. These enzyme have great demand when they are active in high salt concentration or alkaline pH. These enzymes may emphasize more Scientific-Entrepreneur in India.
