Propellor with fouling including non-native species

The role of leisure boating and marinas in the secondary spread of non-natives along coastlines is being investigated.

This has involved survey work, monitoring and experimental investigations using settlement panels. The data also contributes baseline distribution information for monitoring future changes in the geographical extent and prevalence of NNS, included in governmental descriptors of environmental status.
