A number of factors affect the adhesion strength of organisms to fouling-release coatings, and except for a few studies focussing on black or white surfaces none have dealt specifically with the effect of coating colour. The aim was to test the effect of colour on the adhesion strength of the barnacle Elminius modestus. Panels coated in six commercial(More)
