Abstract Some of Maluku's coastal traditional residents believe that the seed of sea grass from species Enhalus acoroides which broadly grown in Maluku is able to enhance imunity against disseases. However the nutritional facts and potentials of sea grass seeds in enhancing immunity is not largely been studied in the state. This study aimed at measuring the antioxidant level of E. acoroides seed and the quality of the sea grass habitat (physical, chemical and biological charracteristic) in coastal area of West Seram district, Maluku. Methods used were diphenylpicrylhydrazil (DPPH) free radical scavenging assay for measuring antioxidant IC-50 level, and observation and measurement for the charracteristic of E. acoroides habitat in two coastal village in West Seram district, Maluku. It was found that the average antioxidant level (IC-50) of E. acoroides seed in both area were 35.73 ppm and 45 ppm (<50 ppm) which indicated a very strong antioxidant activities. The average for each parameter of both habitat charracteristic were quality of coastline water: oxygen level 7.02-11.24 mg/l, pH 6.84-7.22, temperature 27.27-27.83 degrees C, salinity 32.47-32.93 parts per thousand, current velocity 0.03-0.06 m/sec and water brightness 0.37-0.73 m. Both habitats were dominated by sandy sediment and muddy-sand sediment, while the average level of surface phos-phate 0.0073 mg/l- 0.0076 mg/l, sediment phosphate 0.0128- 0.0168 mg/l, surface nitrite 0.0021-0.0172 mg/l and sediment nitrite 0.0121-0.0144 mg/l. This numbers indicated that the habitats were optimal for the growth of E. acoroides. It can be concluded that E. acoroides seeds taken from two optimum habitats in coastal village of West Seram district have strong potential of antioxidant activities which can be used to treat various oxidative stress related diseases.
