MAF is working toward implementation of an import health standard for vessel biofouling. An understanding is needed of the range of options available to manage biofouling on non-compliant vessels and the risks that are associated with their application. Decisions about risk mitigation must balance biosecurity needs with those of New Zealand’s other values. This project identified the consequences of different biofouling management options under various scenarios of non-compliance.
