This article briefly reviews ocean and seas as huge and novel biomedical resources for anti-infection, which includes tuberculosis, H. Pylori, and HIV infection as well as SARS-CoV-2, and as promising biomedical resources for infection-induced major non-communicable diseases (mNCDs), such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. These marine natural products (MNPs) and organisms include sea cucumbers, sea snake, sponge, marine algae and microalgae, etc. As key biomedical resources for the discovery of marine drugs, bioactive molecules, and agents for treatment of infectious diseases and mNCDs, MNPs have bioactive potentials of antioxidant, anti-infection, anti-inflammatory, anticoagulant, anti-diabetic effects, and cancer treatment. In addition, their anti-inflammatory mechanisms for infectious diseases are also involved. It’s time to protect ocean ecosystem for human better sustainable development in the new era of ocean economy.
