The present study was carried out to evaluate the antibacterial activity of crude extracts of Cellana radiata collected from Visakhapatnam coast, Andhra Pradesh. The whole animal extracts from methanol and ethyl acetate were obtained by both dry and wet methods and tested for their activity against three pathogenic bacteria i.e. Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Vibrio harveyi. The extracts obtained from methanol (wet), ethyl acetate (dry) and ethyl acetate (wet) showed inhibition zones of 12 mm, 13 mm and 18 mm respectively against V. harveyi.
