    Introduction: Protease is one of the important industrial enzymes which was produced from various sources. Materials and Methods: In this study, protease was isolated from marine algae such as Gracilaria corticata, Cladophora vagabunda, Chaetomorpha antennina, and Ulva spp. Protein concentration and special activities were measured and compared for these species. Results: Among these, G. corticata, C. Vagabunda, and C. antennina showed maximum specific activity (7.53, 6.77, and 6.75 units/mg of protein) of protease, respectively. Conclusion: This work reveals that the seaweeds are the vital source for enzyme.
