Marine microorganisms degrading porphyran (POR) were found on the surface of thalli of <I>Porphyra yezoensis</I>. Fifteen crude microorganism groups softened and liquefied the surface of agar-rich plate medium. Among these, 11 microorganism groups degraded porphyran that consisted of sulfated polysaccharide in <I>Porphyra yezoensis</I>. Following isolation, 7 POR-degradable microorganisms were isolated from the 11 POR-degradable microorganism groups.
