Growth on thru hulls?

I have several ball valves and thru hulls on my Moody 47. These were made in India and in my opinion is one of the weak links in an otherwise very high quality yacht. I have some growth forming on a few of these and before I change them out I would like to make sure I deal with whatever is causing this. Can anyone help me identify the cause?
