Understanding the challenges biofouling can bring to your operation.
The first step in combating costly biofouling issues in aquaculture operations is to identify the problem. Accurate species identification opens the door to biofouling avoidance strategies, optimised asset cleaning and maintenance scheduling, and effective post-harvest cleaning procedures.
For infrastructure owners and operators there is an obligation to be aware of potentially harmful marine organisms residing on equipment and to take appropriate mitigation steps where necessary. The Centre applies its extensive taxonomic expertise to help its clients rapidly identify key biofouling organisms to ensure that operations are free from harmful marine organisms, resulting in savings to its clients in time and money.
