Samenvatting

Marine biological fouling is bringing ecological implications as well as economical loss in the maritime industry and aquaculture. Since the ban of Tributyltin and other self-polishing copolymer paints (TBT-SPC paints) a new generation of surrogate antifouling biocides such as zinc pyrithione (ZnPT) and copper pyrithipne (CuPT) have been increasingly used. The aim of the present study was to determine and compare antifouling efficacy of biocides for maritime antifouling paints and for paints used in aquaculture as well as the toxicity of these compounds. In comparison of the free biocides CuPT and ZnPT for Artemia Salina and Bugula Neritina, ZnPT was the more toxic one. Further on the antifouling paints showed that with time the leachate waters are increasing its activity.
