The result showed that each planting distance treatment in uenced signi cantly against Sargassum sp. growth performance. The lowest absolute growth was observed at 20cm treatment with 34.33g, while the highest was found at 40cm treatmet with 44.50g. The highest speci c growth rate was observed at 50 cm planting distance with 8.76%, while the lowest was found at 30cm planting distance treatment with 2.93%.
