Sample text

Perhaps for biophysical reasons [44], there appears to be no biological intermediary that facilitates the transfer sperm (or eggs) for fertilisation in aquatic systems; that is, there is no aquatic equivalent to the pollinator-mediated systems of terrestrial flowering plants [45]. Internal fertilisation is largely restricted to mobile animals, which are of little concern in biofouling (except perhaps as predators or grazers of biofoulers). The obvious exception to this pattern is barnacles, which fertilise internally by means of a famously long (relative to body size) penis.

Both sperm and eggs are released freely and fertilisation takes place externally, in the open water column (broadcasting).
