Mmmmmm! Surely ALL anti fouling is 'bad for marine life'. That's why it's used, to stop 'marine life' from growing on the hull. If it isn't used the huge increases in fuel consumption will use up precious resources, adding to global warming (which will kill lots of 'marine life' because the water will get too warm).
Ordinary anti fouling wears away as the boat travels through the water, thus spreading its 'poisons' over a large area. Coppercoat stays on the boat for about ten years and only kills 'marine life' that actually sticks to it (which then falls off). It's therefore better for the environment and 'marine life'.
Frankly, I get pi**ed off with environmentalist clap trap and bad science. I also dislike trolls and I think I may have been hooked by one.
Apologies if I'm wrong.
Maybe I'm just fed up of grey skies.
