A novel bioassay for evaluating the efficacy of biocides to inhibit settling and early establishment of marinebiofilms
This paper presents a novel assay that allows a quick and robust assessment of the effects of biocides on the initial settling and establishment of marine photoautotrophic biofilms. The assay integrates the response of the multitude of indigenous fouling organisms, which overcomes a major limitation of existing assays which are largely limited to testing only lab-cultivatable species. The assay was evaluated using eight antifouling biocides, for which full concentration-response curves aredoi:10.7287/peerj.preprints.240v3 fatcat:l73qxf2hxjdwbna2doe7rhbfhm
