The main nontoxic antifouling approaches are introduced, highlighting the need for an understanding of cyprid adhesion and surface properties that discourage settlement. The current status of knowledge in these areas is then reviewed and prospects for future research are discussed. Key words: barnacle, adhesion, cyprid cement, temporary adhesive, cyprid settlement, fouling-release, antifouling. , Houghton 1970). The state-of-the-art for antifouling1 technology still relies on this strategy through the use of biocides to deter or kill colonising forms (see Anderson et al.

Nevertheless, biocides are likely to remain the mainstay of antifouling 1 The term antifouling is used here for any strategy that mitigates colonisation of an artificial surface. 46 Surface colonisation by marine organisms 47 strategies for the foreseeable future (Anderson et al.
