To isolation and identification proof of optional metabolites producing marine Actinomycetes against clinical bacterial pathogens. To scrutinize the bioactive compound from isolated actinomycetes. Marine Actinomycetes isolated from seashore samples from different places of Nagapattinam, Velankani, and Karaikal in India. Antimicrobial substances from marine Actinomycetes were identified by cross streak method and agar plate method. The potent Actinomycetes species were inoculated on production medium and extracted. The extracted compound was screened for antibacterial activity. Fifteen Actinomycetes species were isolated from the selected marine soil sample. All the fifteen isolates were active against the test organisms. Chemical screening strongly suggested that presence of alkaloids, Flavonoids, Carbohydrates and Glycosides. The result of marine Actinomycetes is composed of potent secondary metabolites. Isolation, screening of marine Actinomycetes can be useful in discovery of novel metabolites.

Keywords: Marine Actinomycetes, Chemical Screening, Antimicrobial activity, Cross-streak method.
