This chapter deals with the marine biopharmaceutical compounds acting against SARS-CoV-2. The promising compounds derived for anti-coronal activity were from marine plants such as cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), green algae, brown algae, and red algae. Among marine invertebrates, only sponges and soft corals contributed with their active bioactive compounds. The chemistry and mechanism of action of the different bioactive compounds have also been dealt with.

Keywords: SARS-CoV-2, Cyanobacteria, Seaweeds, Marine sponges, Marine soft corals, Bioactive compounds against SARS-CoV-2, Mechanism of action of anti-coronal compounds.
