Certain enzymes that are secreted by microbes such as fungi and bacteria present in the marine environment are called marine enzymes. These microbes secrete different enzymes based on their ecological functions and habitat. Marine microorganisms and their enzymes can function in environments with high pressure and light, high salt concentrations, and in a wide variety of temperatures. Marine enzymes are a significant source of biocatalysis. Fermentation process can be used to produce and extract marine enzymes from animals, microorganisms, and plants. Enzymes generated by marine microorganisms are used in a variety of sectors, including textiles, chemical, pharmaceuticals, biomedicine, agriculture, and food processing. Marine enzymes exhibit a wide range of pharmacological uses, and can be used as pesticides, mycotoxins, pigments, antiparasitics, antibiotics, herbicides, antitumor agents, toxins, and growth promoters for both plants and animals. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts and emerging trends with respect to the sources, biocatalytic characteristics, and bioprocesses of marine enzymes. It will help the readers in keeping pace with the rapid changes in this area of study.
