    Marine environment is a potential source of secondary metabolites which provides an encouraging source for development of novel natural pharmaceuticals. Among the marine organisms, actinomycetes are a group of bacteria that are widely distributed and are known to play a very supporting role in the degradation of organic matter. The mangrove soil samples were collected from various locations in Vellappallam, and around Vedharanyam,[near Point Calimere, Lat. 10_ 18’ N and Long. 79_ 51’ E (seashore)], at Nagapattinam Dt. Tamil Nadu India. Soil samples were collected from the study site at randomly during the study period and physicochemical characteristics of sediment soil in marine environment of Tamilnadu part of Bay of Bengal, India. Various stations at different parts of the marine sites were selected for sampling and the following physicochemical parameters were recorded at different seasonal intervals. Totally 35 strains were isolated from marine sediment samples of Tamilnadu part of Bay of Bengal, India. Among them, 35 isolates were morphologically distinct on the basis of colour of spore mass, melanin pigment, reverse side pigment, soluble pigment, aerial and substrate mycelium formation and sporophore morphology. 35 isolates were identified as genus Streptomyces, (5) Actinopolyspora (10), Actinomadura (5), Nocardiopsis (7), Micromonospora (8) and Actinomyces (5).
