Corner R, Ham D, Bron J & Telfer T (2007) Qualitative assessment of initial biofouling on fish nets used in marine cage aquaculture, Aquaculture Research, 38 (6), pp. 660-663.
A short communication which assesses the process of initial development of biofilms on nets used for fish culture in marine systems. Settlement follows a pattern of succession through conditioning, bacteria and diatoms with associated Extracellular Polymeric Substance (EPS) and other microscopic algae and fauna. Initial settlement appears to accelerate further settlement.
