Vessel biofouling represents a significant pathway for the introduction of non-indigenous species into New Zealand’s marine ecosystems and their subsequent translocation. While best management for this pathway is prevention through good practice, reactive management of fouled vessels at the border and in post-border situations is required.
The most effective method for removal of biofouling from a vessel is via dry-docking or slipping. However, availability, practicality and feasibility issues regarding fouled large vessels have led to reactive in-water systems being proposed as a tool for their management. Outputs from this project will broaden the availability of management options to mitigate the biosecurity risk associated with fouled large vessels.
This project provides the opportunity to identify and test suitable reactive in-water systems to manage hull fouling on large vessels.
