Microalgae, especially marine microalgae, are rich resources of bioactive compounds and functional foods, many of which are of high value. However, the applications in these areas are still limited because of the poor understanding of microalgal characteristics, mass cultivation technologies, and the bioactivities and functionalities of microalgal products. In this issue, we will focus on the development of marine microalgal functional foods. Experts in this interdisciplinary area of microalgal research and applications will be invited to contribute results of recent advances of their research. I am sure that this effort will lead to significant progress in this highly promising research area.
