The diversity and productivity of marine ecosystems are extremely important in preserving the health of the marine and terrestrial environment, and provides important sources of food for humans and animals, for the pharmaceutical industry, medicine, as well as for additives in the food industry and cosmetics, etc. The importance of the macrobenthic flora - algae and phanerogames - for the general productivity of the marine environment, especially in shallow waters, is becoming more and more obvious from the biological, as well as from the economical point of view. The macrophytes also represent a particular life form. During the past years, it became obvious that the ecosystem presents a marine algae excedent, which should be turned valuable in one way or another. The phytochemical studies on the algae [1,2, 3] (inferior marine plants belonging to the Thallophyta systemic category) presents the possibility of their usage as raw material.
