It is well known from the marine history that from the very beginning of the navigation, the marine fouling, i.e. growth of various aquatic organisms on the ships underwater parts was always considered a very serious problem. This book is aimed to address some key aspects of the technologies of development and application of the anti-fouling coatings intended to protect the ships hull. The following has been covered in this publication: Marine fouling organisms, their impact on the hull, chemically active marine antifouling technologies, development of antifouling coatings and their testing, various surface approaches to the control of marine bio-fouling.
