The qualitative and quantitative aspects of marine biological fouling and environmental factors influencing its character are discussed. The authors examine present "state of the art" antifouling techniques and the theoretical chemical and biological tenets upon which they are based. Effectiveness of presently used systems is compared and future needs for fouling prevention, projecting present methods and new approaches which warrant further research, are indicated.
