Marine biotechnology is the study of the creatures that inhabit oceans and saltwater environments. More than 80% of the earth’s living organisms are found in the aquatic ecosystem, and the biochemical characteristics of these organisms can be beneficial to humans in the cure of various diseases such as cancer, and for commercial purposes in several industries as a substitute of fuel. Many of these organisms possess lifesaving properties.

Marine biotechnology includes numerous fields as follows,
  • Microbiology
  • Fisheries and aquaculture
  • Deep sea ecology
  • Ichthyology
  • Marine mammology
  • Marine ethology
Scientists estimate that not more than 5% of oceans have been explored; there are a variety of tools used for marine biotechnology study such as fiber optics, satellites, sonar, sounding, and others. Marine biotechnology is providing many new solutions to industries and agriculture, along with environment friendly pesticides and enzymes helpful for commercial usage.

Demand for innovative biochemicals, increased awareness of environment protection, importance of marine creatures in terms of cure for diseases such as cancer, and availability of advanced marine equipments for research are the major drivers for this market. Extraction of useful biochemicals from unexplored marine creatures for commercial and medical purposes presents a challenge for marine research companies.

Currently, North America leads the market, followed by Europe. Various countries in the Asia-Pacific region have started developing extensive marine biotechnology research projects in surrounding oceans. The increasing usage of biochemicals is expected to result in significant demand for marine biotechnology in the next decade. Some of the major players in the market are Aker BioMarine ASA, PML Applications Ltd., Cyanotech Corp., FMC Corp., Elan Corp, Integrin Advanced Biosystems, FMC Biopolymers AS, GlycoMar Ltd., CP Kelco US, Inc., International Specialty Products Inc., Primex Ltd., Prolume Ltd., Sea Run Holdings Inc., Tequesta Marine Biosciences Lonza Group Ltd., MariCal, Marinova, Martek Biosciences Corp., Mera Pharmaceuticals Inc., New England Biolabs Inc., and PharmaMar S.A.
