Biofouling is "ruiness!" Biofouling carries marine species that are extremely tough and resilient.
Around 87% of non NZ species come in on international vessels and threaten our marine environment.
These hitchhiking pests love the bottom of your boat and those hidden niche areas where they thrive i.e. rudder hinges, internal seawater systems, bilge pumps.
Let's do our bit and help stop the spread of pests in NZ waters.
