Marine fungi have been raising many different questions over the past few years, either in terms of their physiology and role in this particular environment, but also in relation to their capacity to produce bioactive compounds. These singular organisms are now studied by many scientists with a growing interest because they are a renewable source of original and new natural products with potential value in many areas (human health, food, cosmetics, biofuels ...).
