Abstract : This report is concerned with the present state of research on the ecology of marine fouling communities and the effects of fouling attachment on the performance of underwater equipment. An assessment is made of the amount and types of data in existence, the adequacy of these data, and the research methods involved in collecting and analyzing these data. An annotated listing of references is provided to show the extent and variety of fouling intelligence presently in existence and to provide a basic source of information directly related to practical fouling problems.
