The effect of various types of pollution on micro-, meso-, and macrofouling succession and on the biocorrosion of high-alloy steel X18N10T (Russian steel grade) in the water of Zolotoi Rog Bay port was studied. Anthropogenic contamination of harbor waters has boosted the development of specific fouling communities presented by certain groups of micro-, meso-, and macrobenthos. The intensity of local destruction of the surface became much higher with mosaic colonization of specimens of high-alloy steel by barnacles than with their continuous distribution. The rate of steel corrosion was ten times higher in the impacted area than in the control area.
