Natural products have proved to be a rich source of therapeutic agents. Plant extracts have been used for thousands of years in the treatment of human diseases. It is somewhat contradictory to note that most of them obtained either by synthesis or from terrestrial organism. The present study is a compilation of some of the marine biologicals with proven chemical nature and pharmacological actions and their separation and isolation techniques. This review summarizes the screening for bioactive compounds of marine animals and marine micro-organism, Finally, new approaches for the screening of metabolites from marine resources are discussed. The goal of this article is to expose the marine substances to bring new solutions for tackling some of the major public health problems.
Key words: Bioactive, Marine, Metabolites, Screening
