Description 
Summary

This study on fouling in the Port of Vigo is carried out with the help of an experimental raft anchored in the port, where reference plates are fitted in order to follow the monthly evolution of the fouling. Once the plates are removed they are subjected to the following laboratory test: density, coverage, associability of the species which integrate the succession which is taking place on the raft in the course of the year.
