Transducer Antifouling?

Apologies if this has been asked and answered already but I couldn't find it.

As the winter upgrade/expenditure draws to a close I have to fit a new transducer for my new fishfinder ( although I'm not known for my interest in fishing)

The old one was barnacle encrusted even with occasional efforts on my part to keep it clean. I gave up due to it's lack of interest in working when the water got shallow.

What can you use on a transducer?
What do people use on a transducer?
The boat will live in the water for about 6 months so there will be some interspeed ultra going on the hull.

Another option is a sliding transducer mount to keep the transducer up out of the water if it's on a mooring or shallow beach launches etc. There are plenty of different models on the market.

Thanks for the replies.

Anti-fouling it is.

The sliding mount is interesting, but I think the barnacles would like to move in to the track if boat wasn't used for any length of time.
