Abstract

Terrestrial environment have relatively exhausted its resource for the pharmaceutical purpose. Recent decades, Marine ecosystem has been drawn attention of many scientists due to its biological and chemical diversity. A marine fishes was collected during from Tenneti beach (Long: 83o20' 59.94'' E; Lat: 17o 44' 48.36'' N) have been situated on the North East coast of Andhra Pradesh. And the COI region of the collected fish was amplified and sequenced, the BLAST results revealed that the organism was Chelonodon patoca. Protein, Lipids and compounds (methanolic) were extracted from skin, liver and ovaries. The antibacterial results revealed that protein extract of skin performed better antibacterial activity among the other extras.
