Background Marine structures such as ship hulls need protection against corrosion and the attachment of marine organisms such as algae and barnacles, known as biofouling. Biofouling negatively affects the hydrodynamics of the hull, increasing drag and thus the necessary propulsive power. As well as increasing fuel costs up to 40% this also necessitates re ...
