During our search for bioactive compounds from Turkish marine sponges, we have detected secondary metabolites from three different marine sponges, which have been collected from Kaş (South Coast of Turkey). Compounds were detected by HPLC method from methanolic extracts of three sponge species, Haliclona cratera (Chalinidae), Axinella damicornis (Axinellidae), Stylissa carteri (Dictyonellidae). Our sponge samples contained bromopyrrole type of alkaloids, brominated alkaloids, pentacyclic alkaloids that showed similarities with the studies carried out by previous researchers.
