As a protein source for human consumption, terrestrial animal production alone may not be sufficient as a food supply for the increasing world population. The availability of high value food resources in the marine environment presents a serious potential for meeting an important amount of the food demand of the increasing world population. Studies on the utilization of marine algae as a food resource for human consumption have become an important topic in human nutrition. Marine algae with its high quality protein content are not only an important food resource for human consumption, but also an important fertilizer being used in the manure industry. The present study is aimed to investigate seasonal variation of biochemical composition of Polysiphonia morrowii (Harvey), a potential marine resource for high value proteinö supply.
