Abstract: The marine ecosystem is a rich source of both biological and chemical diversity which has been explored in the discovery of unique chemicals, having potential for industrial development as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, nutritional supplements, molecular probes, fine chemicals and agrochemicals. In recent years, a significant number of novel metabolites with potent pharmacological properties have been discovered from marine organisms. In the present paper various research reports on some marine organisms used in different Indian systems of medicine have been discussed for further developments.
