This informative volume contains all materials of the international workshop that was held in 1999 by the NRC (National Research Council) - they were collected in order to summarize the data and discuss the significance of the role of marine bio-technology in the prevention of the marine environment degradation together with its restoration and remediation. Each of the participants of that scientific event touched the current situation and tried to highlight the real research needs. Among the important topics discussed by the speakers there were restoration of coral reefs, negative impact of heavy metals, possible strategies for prevention or at least inhibition of bio-film development, oil spill remediation etc. They have also tried to check the most important gaps in the technical knowledge possessed by the marine science community. These proceedings have been very carefully reviewed by the respected industry experts chosen for their remarkably diverse perspectives as well as prominent technical expertise as per with the established procedures. It is definitely suggested that this set or technical documents is checked by every person involved or interested in the marine environment protection, because of the quality and up-to-dateness of information contained.
