Marine-derived pathogens threat health and life of human and animals. Therefore, rapid and specific detection methods need to be developed. Here, we summarized various groups of detection methods, including conventional method, flow cytometry, nucleic acid-based method, and protein-based method. In addition, perspective of detection technique was discussed as a unified detection system for pathogens.
