Over the past two decades, there have been increasing trends toward replacing synthetic colorants with natural pigments because of their harmful effects on co-workers and consumers. So bacterial pigments, due to their better biodegradability and higher compatibility with the environment, offer promising avenues for various applications. However, there is significant economic potential for anti-microbial, anti-cancer, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-allergic characteristics. Additionally, bacterial sources provide more scope than plant sources for the quick and affordable production of natural colorants all through the year. The current review study gives an outline of the naturally pigmented compounds derived from marine bacteria and nanoparticles based on information learned from the literature.

Keywords: Marine bioactive microorganisms, pigments, and nanoparticles
