effort around Bear Creek
in Dundalk, volunteers that
included Baltimore Port Alliance
(BPA) members removed 567 bags

In addition to ship surveys, the
Smithsonian is also using a lab where
researchers can take organisms
from the field and simulate voyages,
subjecting them to changes in
temperature and salinity.
“We’ll be doing this research for
several years,” Ruiz said. “There are
lots of questions that we would like to
explore and provide feedback to the
shipping companies.”
A key challenge that remains
is to gain local acceptance and
understanding of in-water cleaning
technologies. It is hoped that the latest
hull-cleaning systems, which capture a
high proportion of what is removed from
the hull, will prove to be both efficient
and desired in major ports of call.
