Abstract: Lactic acid bacteria (LAB) are beneficial bacteria. They are known for their human gut floral maintenance, fermentative activity and food preservative capacity. The marine strains may have better potential than their terrestrial counterparts. This is due to essential nutrients provided by marine biotopes for nurturing the LAB, and to extreme environmental niches. The marine LAB and their by-products may have potential values in food processing, fermentation, pharmaceutical and biopolymer industries.
