Omaezallene, a new brominated antifouling natural product isolated from the red alga Laurencia sp., was synthesized and its structure elucidated through NMR experiments. The antifouling activities of omaezallene and its isomers against the cypris larvae of the barnacle Amphibalanus amphitrite were also evaluated.
