Pais, Antonio and Serra, Simonetto and Saba, Sara and Ragazzola, Federica and Cossu, Andrea Vito Luigi (2010) Variations of biofouling communities in an off-shore fish cage farm from North-Western Sardinia = Variazioni del biofouling in un allevamento ittico in gabbie off-shore della Sardegna nord-occidentale. Biologia marina mediterranea, Vol. 17 (1), p. 276-277. ISSN 1123-4245. Article.
Biofouling variations were studied in a fish farming facility near Alghero (Italy) between November 2007 and November 2008. Net panels suitable for the settlement of encrusting organisms were immersed in cages in which large and small gilthead seabream specimens were reared. Significant differences in biofouling biomass and coverage were observed between cages containing fish and controls. The results obtained revealed that gilthead seabream can exert a crucial role in controlling biofouling growth, independently from its size.
