Twenty species of marine macroalgae were collected from the south east cost of India were screened for total lipids, total fatty acids, C16:0, PUFA, EPA, DHA, n3 and n6 by Gas chromatography. The total lipid content varied significantly from 348 mg/100g to 3579 mg/100g and all other fatty acids are also significantly differed among the collected macroalgae species. Brown algae Stoecheospermeum marginatum had higher total lipid, total fatty acids and PUFA were as C16:0, EPA, DHA, n3 and n6 was higher in green algae Halimeda macroloba. Halymenia dilate had the lowest total lipids, fatty acids, C16:0, PUFA, EPA, DHA, n3 and n6.
Key words: Algae, DHA, EPA and PUFA.
