From water samples of the Syr-Darya andAmu-Darya are isolated 15 local microalgae belonging to the genus Chlorococcum and 13 to the genus Scenedesmus.Air-dry biomass ofmicroalgae ranged from1.29 to 2.79 g/l of environment. The lipid content of effective strains of Chlorococcum sp.4, Chlorococcum sp.8, Chlorococcum sp.12 and Chlorococcum sp.37 was 41.8 - 58.0%of the total dry biomass ofmicroalgae.High lipid accumulation observed in cells of cultures Scenedesmus sp.29 and Scenedesmus sp.37- 40,3%and 48,0%, respectively.
