Abstract: Eight abundantly found benthic algal species from Sunderban were collected and compared for their biochemical composition. The algae showed significant quantities of nutrient parameters like - total carbohydrate, reducing sugar, total protein, total free amino acid, proline, total lipid along with fatty acids. C16 and C18 PUFAs were present in maximum amount. The major fatty acids identified were 14:0, 16:0, 18:1, and 18:2, 18:3, 18:4 acids. Vitamin C was also present in small amounts. Pigments chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b and carotenoids were present in considerable quantities. Individual differences were noticeable in the biochemical composition of the algae studied. Overall observation suggests their suitability for exploitation in food and pharamaceutical industry.
