One percent extracts of twenty five marine algae were assayed for their nematicidal properties using Helicotylenchus indicus as test nematode. After 48 hrs., the number of active nematodes was reduced by 78% in Cystoclonium purpureum, 75% in Chaetomorpha antennina, 95% in Centroceras clauulatum, 90% in Dictyota indica and 44% in Scinaia fasicularia.

Keywords: Extracts, marine algae, nematode, Helicotylenchus indicus.
