Caption: Studying mollusc corrosion of metals. Researcher using a syringe to remove a sample from inside a mussel. It is thought that the glue and bacteria found in mussels and other molluscs cause corrosion of metal boat hulls. Over time, boat hulls can become heavily encrusted with marine molluscs that glue themselves to the bottom of the boat. This, combined with bacteria, forms a biofilm that can corrode the metal hulls.
