Abstract : Studies on the fouling organisms in Bombay harbour were undertaken as a part of the Antifouling Research Programme at NCML, Bombay, and the results obtained during a period of about three years (August 1953-May 1956) are described in the present paper. Structural details of the floating Raft on which experimental non-toxic panels were exposed every month have been mentioned. Seasonal variations in the attachment of the different groups of Fouling Organisms are described in detail.
