Stratified seawater disrupts the transport of imposex substances

, including near Gibraltar an in-between stratum of warm very salty water from the Mediterranean.

The United Nations' International Maritime Organization (IMO) has recently adopted a convention that prohibits the use of antifouling paints based on organotin compounds such as TBT, which cause imposex. From 2003 onwards they may no longer be applied to vessels and from 2008 onwards they may no longer be present on vessels. In the meantime the chemical industry has developed several effectif alternatives that are less harmful to the maritime environment.
