Abstract

Port of Tanjung Intan Cilacap is one of four major international shipping ports located in Jawa Island and among 85 ports troughout Indonesia. International shipping ports are exposed for non-indigenous species including barnalces as a consequence of shipping trafic. Barnacle is the most common marine fouling found in ship’s hull and ballast water of ocean going vesssel. This work was aimed at knowing which barnacle species were passively transported on such vessels hulls, in order to map and monitor non-indigenous species invasion in the area. Four vessels of different origins were investigated between April and November 2009. Among four vessels, three of them were clean. A cosmopolit non-invasive species were found on a ship of Ukrainan origin, Amphibalanus amphitrite., which also occur dominantly in the port of Tanjung Intan Cilacap. This port was considered at no introduction risk of non-indigenous species.
