Operational Indicators

Port Duration

Immersion time is important for fouling accumulation, with organism settlement being restricted when in high flow conditions (e.g. when vessels are underway) (2). The duration of a vessel’s stay in a port can influence the overall risk of the vessel transferring an invasive aquatic species (IAS), as increased residence time increases the likelihood of fouling organisms settling on a vessel hull (2,3).

The Port Duration indicator within the Vessel-Check portal examines the period a vessel stayed in its 'last port of call' (LPoC) compared to the vessel's mean port stay duration. An extended stay at the LPoC beyond a vessels typical period of stay may indicate a greater likelihood of transferring an IAS to the destination port, especially if other aspects of the vessel’s biofouling management strategies are limited (e.g. expired antifoulant coating and/or no recent records of biofouling management plan implementation).

Environmental Compatibility

The likelihood of impacts from an invasive aquatic species (IAS) is positively related to its ability to thrive in the receiving environment (1). Environmental matching (or similarity)* does provide a base indication of the potential threat a vessel may pose in transferring an IAS into the receiving jurisdiction (2). The Vessel-Check portal assesses the environmental compatibility between the Last Port of Call (LPoC) and the Destination Port (DP) by examining the similarity between environmental parameters of chlorophyll a (Chl a) (3) and sea surface temperature (SST) (4). Chl a and SST tolerances are known to be two of the key factors in determining an aquatic species range (1, 5). The portal examines the long-term monthly average Chl a and SST of the LPoC and DP for the arrival month of the vessel (when entering a jurisdictions port); where high environmental compatibility indicates a greater likelihood that a potential IAS could establish.

* species-traits which influence establishment likelihood are not accounted for within the metric.

Inherent Vessel Risk

Certain vessels can have an inherent biosecurity risk resulting from the nature of their operations (e.g. dredges due to their contact with the seafloor) and/or the inability of a vessel to undertake proactive biofouling management (e.g. oil rigs due to the excessive cost associated with the application of an antifoulant coating (AFC) to such an intricately large structure). If appropriate, jurisdictions can apply a level of the inherent risk associated with a particular vessel type(s). The indicator in the Vessel-Check portal intends to encourage direct liaison of the particular vessel type(s) (deemed to have an inherent risk) directly with the biosecurity management agency to ensure a proactive management solution is achieved. By default this indicator is disabled (returns a low risk), it can easily be enabled to suit a jurisdiction’s requirements.
