What is biofouling?

Biological fouling (biofouling) is the undesirable accumulation of microorganisms, plants and animals on artificial surfaces. This occurs on artificial surfaces submerged in seawater (marine biofouling), such as ship’s hulls, seaside piers and sea defences, as well as on other surfaces in continuous contact with water, such as air conditioning systems and water pipes.
