Studies suggested that microbes account for most of the diversity of life on our planet, due to their presence in almost all ecosystems. The microbial world encompasses most of the phylogenetic diversity and from varied climatic extremities. Recently, several researches are now focused on isolate and study of novel microbes and extracting the valuable chemicals and products out of it. Although, it was estimate that less than one percent of all microbial species have been identified so far, and

Thus, in our present review we have tried to provide quick pragmatic evidence of aquatic microbial diversity and focus on some of their industrial important enzymes.
