Marine bioactive substances refer to compounds with biological activity extracted from marine organisms, including but not limited to algae, sponges, mollusks, etc. These compounds have attracted great attention due to their widespread applications in fields such as medicine, drug development, and ecology. With the increasing impact of humans on the Earth's ecosystem, the study of marine bioactive substances also involves ecology and environmental science. Protecting marine biodiversity while exploring its potential medical and ecological applications has become an important part of maintaining ecological balance and human health. This review delves into the pharmacological effects and bioactivity assessment of marine bioactive substances, including their concepts, diversity, separation techniques, pharmacological properties, practical application cases, and potential medical applications, challenges, and prospects. However, its research still faces challenges of resource sustainability, high costs, and time investment. To address these issues, researchers encourage in-depth research on marine biodiversity and provide new perspectives in this field.
