Abstract:

A study was made of the marine biofouling communities of Admiralty Inlet, Washington during the period August 1963 to June 1968. This is one of a series of biofouling studies being made by the Naval Oceanographic Office NAVOCEANO at selected locations throughout the world to determine the character and extent of biofouling communities fouling and boring organisms. Specific objectives of these studies include collection of information on the kinds of attaching organisms, their season of attachment, areal distribution, and productivity. This information is then related to probable effects on marine hardware and instruments.
