Moto ondoso is the eroding of the Venetian canal walls from the impact forces of boat wake, which leads to expensive and time consuming canal wall maintenance. This project proposed the erection of a protective barrier in front of the canal walls to absorb the forces of moto ondoso. This barrier would be formed by auto-accretion, or the acceleration of naturally occurring accretion of seawater minerals on a submerged metallic surface from the power generated by a microbial fuel cell.
