We performed field tests on 111 panels with 33 different coatings from four ONR-affiliated laboratories. The resultant data have been reported back to the contractors, who are making additional changes to their compounds for further testing. Investigations of the bacterial basis of recruitment of larvae of biofouling animals to marine surfaces have found new bacterial mechanisms for three new species isolated from biofilms in Hawaii and identified with molecular genetics.
