One of the most aggravating nemeses to those having to keep their boats in a salt water environment is the dreaded barnacle. A barnacle is a type of arthropod that is related to crabs and lobsters.

Barnacles are exclusively marine. They therefore tend to live in shallow and tidal waters.. They are sessile suspension feeders, and have two nektonic (marine and freshwater organisms that can swim freely and are generally independent of currents) larval stages. Around 1,220 barnacle species are currently known.
