Biofouling is the accumulation of marine animals, plants and algae on the surface of ships and other marine structures. When ships and structures move to new areas, these species can detach themselves, adapt to the new habitat, overcome local fauna and become invasive, with negative effects in the host ecosystem.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.

GloFouling Partnerships Project addresses 5 out of 17 goals.

Recreational boating and biofouling management survey

Complete the survey in order to help us produce a study on the impacts of biofouling in the recreational boating sector, and its role as a vector for invasive aquatic species.

 

The study will include recommendations on the best approaches to tackle biofouling in a cost-effective way for all types of sailing boats, motorboats and yachts.

Global Industry Alliance for Marine Biosafety

Calling leaders from maritime, shipping, ocean energy, aquaculture and other ocean-based industries to join this alliance to support two key IMO pressing environmental  objectives via improved biofouling management: protect marine biodiversity and decarbonize shipping.
