In this study, free radical scavenging activity, alpha tocopherol and total carotenoid contents of extracts of Mytilus galloprovincialis, Ruditapes philipinarum, Donax trunculus and Chamelea gallina bivalve species collected from Denizkent in the Marmara Sea are determined. As a result of the monthly samplings, the amount of alpha tocopherol is quite high in all species, whereas the total amount of carotenoids is highest in Donax trunculus (2435 µg/g), then in Mytilus galloprovincialis (2189.6 µg/g), and in the other two species parallel results are obtained. When the free radical scavenging activity is evaluated, on average, Ruditapes philipinarum (22.8%) is the highest, Mytilus galloprovincialis (16.75%) and Chamelea gallina (17.98%) are close to each other, 11% in Donax trunculus, it has been determined that 85. In addition, other parameters obtained in this study were examined by considering statistical evaluations
