The deep Sea has several herbal sources such as marine organisms. These marine sources possibly have effective anticancer properties. The fused heterocyclic ring with marine source has special characteristics with minimum toxicity and with maximum anticancer effects. The review focused on and classified the prospective lead compounds which have shown a promising therapeutic range as anticancer agents in clinical and preclinical trials.

Keywords: Marine, herbal, anticancer activity, heterocyclic, cancer, fused-ring.
