The OCEANIC Project (represented by WavEC) is at the Business2Sea 2018 event from the 14th to 16th of November in Porto, Portugal, promoting the Biofouling Database developed within the project.

As part of the OCEANIC project, the development of a European biofouling mapping is a specific output which aims to provide developers, operators and regulators a quick overview of geographical biofouling distribution facilitating informed decisions.

This tool is based on five, among the most problematic, biofouling groups: macroalgae, bryozoans, mussels (and other relevant bivalves) and calcareous tubeworms in different European Ecoregions.
