Abstract

The present invention describes how coating of surfaces with an extract, particularly a fish extract, can significantly reduce microbial adhesion, attachment, colonization and biofilm formation on surfaces. Such reduction of microbial adherence, attachment and colonization will be applicable in a large range of areas. The reduced numbers of adhered, attached or colonized microbial organisms is not due to a general growth inhibitory effect and therefore the anti-adhesive effect may not be caused by the presence of antimicrobials (antibiotics or non-antibiotics) in the fish extract.
