This study focuses on the isolation of marine actinomycetes, their cultivation through fermentation on rice medium, and the subsequent evaluation of their antimicrobial activity. Marine environments are known to harbor diverse and potentially valuable microorganisms, including actinomycetes, which are renowned for their capacity to produce bioactive compounds.
Marine actinomycetes were isolated from marine samples, and their cultivation was carried out using a rice-based medium. This fermentation process aimed to stimulate the production of biologically active secondary metabolites. These metabolites are of particular interest due to their potential antimicrobial properties, which could have significant applications in the field of medicine and biotechnology.
