Biofouling has great environmental, economic, and societal impacts. Emerging and promising strategies for antibiofouling require incorporation of sustainability concepts. To this end, key research priorities should be given to disrupting attachment of organisms or engineering innovative surfaces to slough off fouling organisms from the surfaces, with more holistic considerations of other viable options, including eco-friendly antifouling chemicals.
