Abstract: The level of residual organochlorine pesticide (OCP) toxicity in green seaweed, Ulva lactuca was examined in the present study. Samples were collected from Hare Island (site 1), Erwadi (site 2), Seeniyappa Dhargah (site 3), Mandapam (site 4) and from Rameswaram (site 5) of Gulf of Mannar coast during North-East Monsoon and the beginning of post-monsoon and were analyzed by the standard protocol of AOAC 2007.01 QuEChERS using GC-MS. The analysis revealed that the total OCPs were ranged from 49.61 ng g-1 to 123.68 ng g-1, respectively in sites 5 and site 1. The persistence of Hexachlorocyclohexane, endosulfan, endrin, and DDT was observed in this study. This study inferred that green seaweeds were found to contain high OCP residues immediately after the rainy season.
