About the Events

Workshop Objective

To identify, promote and develop effective and practical biofouling management strategies that will ensure shipping and other maritime industries can continue to underpin trade, security, and economic development with minimal environmental impact

History

The inaugural ANZPAC Workshop on Biofouling Management for Sustainable Shipping in 2013 was an outstanding international event that brought industry together with scientists and regulators, and this success was repeated with the second workshop in 2015. The workshop is most similar in scope to the International Congress on Marine Corrosion and Fouling, and therefore held in alternate years to those events. It differs, however, in having a greater focus on practical issues facing the shipping sector in terms of regulatory compliance, efficiency of vessel performance, and other challenges posed by biofouling and its management.

Agenda

Oral presentations are by invitation only, and the invited speakers and their topics will be specifically selected to provide a global outlook on current biofouling management needs, requirements and practices, deficiencies in effectiveness and practicality, and the status of research in better understanding impacts and developing innovative solutions.

Specific goals of the workshop are to:

·         Explore the current and future maritime landscape as it relates to recent and proposed regulations, standard development and implementation;

·         Discuss the needs of vessel operators to find a balance between improved vessel fuel efficiency, reduced maintenance costs, effective biosecurity risk mitigation and compliance with proposed standards; and,

·         Identify where the knowledge and policy gaps are that are hindering the implementation of effective biofouling management strategies and standards

The themes for the 2017 workshop will include: regulations & requirements (biosecurity/antifouling), biofouling & vessel efficiency, biofouling management, in-water cleaning (methods & management), invasive & non-indigenous species risks, and domestic & small vessels (risks and management).

Poster presentations are invited.
