Abstract: One of the main challenges of pearl industry in Fiji and the South Pacific is trying to control the harmful effects of excessive biofouling on Mother of Pearl Oysters until they are ready implanting and grafting process. Controlling and cleaning biofouling is a major expense of any pearl farm operation. Biofouling also has a significant effect on the growth rate and survival of pearl oysters. This study is aimed at addressing some of the challenges faced by local pearling industry.
