The highest quality nets safeguards your fish
AKVA group offer several types of nets for your pens. Both traditional and proven fibre nets (mainly nylon) made by our subsidiary Egersund Net in Norway, as well as the innovative and promising non-fiber EcoNets (solid PET wire).
The net is the only barrier keeping your valuable farmed fish inside the pen, it is the most critical piece of equipment on a pen farm. To prevent fish escapes and other fish losses, you should never compromize on quality. Only the highest quality and designs must be used, combined with Norwegian Standard (NS9415) design and dimensioning.
In order to ensure correct net specifications for your farm site, documented site environmental loads from currents, waves and wind must be used for dimensioning and design. This must be followed by professional and systematic inspections, maintenance and testing throughout the life span of the net. The end result is a net you can trust, whether fiber or non-fiber materials.
