Abstract


The fouling-forming organisms, because they present a rapid colonization, bring several damages to the activities. This
fact is observed in the water collection pipes used for the cooling in Termopernambuco, which needs to stop its activities
with a periodicity for scraping the organisms that are embedded in its walls, reducing or even rendering unfeasible the electric power production of
this thermoelectric unit. The study searched identify the species of cirripedia that inhabit the tubes, being found four species of Balanomorpha, that
cause fouling. It is noteworthy that three species are cryptogenic and one endemic to the Brazilian Coast.
