This document presents technical guidance for managing the biofouling risk of short-stay vessels arriving to New Zealand. The management of vessel biofouling on hull and niche areas is primarily achieved by the application or installation of suitable antifouling systems. The choice of system(s) should be based on a vessel’s operational profile. Records should be kept of all antifouling systems applied or installed on the vessel.
