Toelichting (Engels) Biofouling (or rather: biological fouling) on ships refers to the process where micro-organisms, plants, algae, or animals accumulate on outside areas of the ship that are (mostly) underwater. Biofouling on ships can result in the transfer of (non-native) invasive aquatic species. This risk has been addressed in the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) 2011 Guidelines for the control and management of ships’ biofouling to minimize the transfer of invasive aquatic species (MEPC.207(62)). In this report, the implementation of this guideline in the Netherlands will be reviewed, based on interviews and an online survey.---Biofouling (biologische vervuiling) op schepen verwijst naar het proces waarbij micro-organismen, planten, algen of dieren zich ophopen op de delen van de buitenkant van het schip die (meestal) onder water zijn. Biofouling op schepen kan resulteren in de verspreiding van (niet-inheemse) invasieve aquatische soorten. Dit risico is door de International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) geadresseerd in de 2011 Guidelines for the control and management of ships’ biofouling to minimize the transfer of invasive aquatic species (MEPC.207(62)). Dit rapport is een review van de implementatie van deze richtlijn in Nederland op basis van interviews en enquêtes.
