Biofouling or biological fouling is the accumulation of microorganisms, plants, algae, or animals on wetted surfaces. Such accumulation is referred to as epibiosis when the host surface is another organism and the relationship is not parasitic.

In the local Government context, biofouling may effect the capacity of stormwater pipelines that discharge into the sea.
