Abstract: This study aims to investigate the fouling bryozoans which attach to artificial structures of Korean ports and harbours. The materials have been collected from 56 sites during the period from 2008 to 2012. As a result of the present study, 40 species of fouling bryozoans were identified. The most abundant species are Bugula neritina (Linnaeus, 1758), Tricellaria occidentalis (Trask, 1857), Watersipora subtoquata (d’Orbigny, 1852), and Cryptosula pallasiana (Moll, 1803). Three species, Flustrellidra armata Grischenko, Seo and Min, 2010, Cauloramphus korensis Seo, 2001, and Parasmittina contraria Seo, 1993 are endemic to Korea. A total of 70 species of fouling bryozoans have been reported in Korea with 16 new bryozoans resulting from this study.
