    This valuable reference book covers the application of marine resources like algae, fishes, and shrimp to address food challenges of the world. It compiles technological advancements in employing these resources for food and food supplements to enhance human health. The book includes chapters from international experts. The book discusses interesting topics like exploitation of marine wastes as nutraceuticals, cultivation, processing, and production of seafood and includes a section on other applications of marine organisms, such as the removal of pollutants from wastewater. This book is meant for graduate students and researchers in food science. It is also useful to experts in the food industry.

    Dr Anil Kumar Patel is currently an Associate Professor at the Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. He is also Senior Scientist (Honorary) at the Centre for Energy and Environmental Sustainability – India. He obtained his MSc degree in Biotechnology from Guru Ghasidas University, Bilaspur, India and PhD in Biotechnology from the North Maharashtra University, Jalgaon, India. His broad post-doctoral research was carried out in several overseas labs basically on waste-to-wealth. The area of his current work is mainly environmental bioengineering, broadly focused on waste to fuel/non-fuel products program utilizing bacterial, and algal systems. Previously he worked at Research Professor at Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Korea University, Seoul and HKBU, Hong Kong on algal biorefinery project and solid waste management. He worked at University of Hawaii, USA on removal of sulfur from gaseous phase of treated S-containing wastewaters by applying designer-biochar which was used for sulfur nutrition in plants. He gained experience in biohythane production using ethanol plant wastes at DBT-IOC Bioenergy Centre, India, also on membrane bioreactor for continuous biohydrogen production as well as VFA separation from industrial waste at Institute Pascal, France. He has been a visiting researcher at EPFL, Switzerland to work on biomass pretreatments. In these studies, both bench-scale and pilot-scale studies were undertaken with techno-economic analysis. He has over 100 publications/communications, which include 04 patents, 80 original and review articles, 22 book chapters and 2 conference proceedings.
