The change of food components in seaweeds, masangi (Capsosiphon fulvecense), gashiparae (Enteromorpha prolifera) and cheonggak (Codium fragile) was investigated at various harvest times. The crude protein was $34.1\~43.8\%$ for masangi and $22.5\~35.7\%$ for gashiparae, respectively. The content of glutamic acid, aspartic acid and leucine among total amino acid was high. The major free amino acids were proline and alanine for masangi, asparagine and glutamic acid for gashipare, and hdyrolxyproline, glutamic acid and alanine for cheonggak. In gashipare, the content of aspargine was greatly decreased, while one of sarcosine was increased in March. The ratio of polyene was $63.91\~74.04\%$ for masangi, $62.87\~68.23\%$ for gashipare, and $40.26\~44.61\%$ for cheonggak. The levels of Ca, K, Mg and Fe were high. In masangi and gashiparae, the chlorophyll a and b was greatly decreased in March.
