Abstract


The green alga Codium flabellattum silva ex Nizamuddin sp harvested from the coast of Karachi, Pakistan, has been allocated for the fatty acid composition. Acid were changed to methyl esters and identified GC - MS.The highest saturated fatty acids was present n-Hexadecanoate (8.17%) and lowest saturated fatty acids was n-Docosanoate, (3.15%.) the Unsaturated fatty acid are maximum percentage in Methyl-tricosenote15.01%,10 Octadecenoicacid 10.81% , Hexadecanoic acid 7.87%, Heptadecenoate 7.14% and minimums n-Heptaecenoic acid 0.05% , 3,8-Dimethyl-27-nonadicneate ,0.42% ,in which 7 are mnonic ,4 are Dieonoic and 6 are trienoic fatty acids were found .The antifungal activity in P. funiculosum in Aqueous extract ,81% and P. funiculosum in Chloroform extract 80% and minimum inhibition activity against P. cetricola 40% in Aqueous extract was noticed. Potassium 21244 ,mg/kg, Calcium 10751.11mg/kg , Iron, 1653 mg/kg Magnesium 3179 mg/kg and minimum values was lead 2.39mg/kg and Chromium was present in lowest amount 0.73mg/kg and protein in the range 12.34% in Sandpits , Bulaji village 20.3 % and minimum in Hawks bay 10.56%
