Custom made cage nets - The difference is in the details
Everything is connected - Cage Nets are an important part of the whole solution
If the net rips, the fish escape. It's as simple as that. To minimise the chance of that happening, nets have to be perfectly dimensioned to fit the other components. Optimal clearance; no abrasion. No unnecessary splices, knots or joins. Minimum shrinkage. Strong framing ropes. Correct and eco-friendly impregnation. Easy cleaning.
The practice of supplying over-dimensioned nets has long been standard procedure in Norway, to ensure that they still fit after several rounds of washing and cleaning. The result is nets that are too large for almost their entire working life. Over-dimensioning leads to problems such as abrasion against sinker ring supporting systems and floating collars, increasing the risk of escapes. What's more, there will be problems when underwater high-pressure washing large nets.
We supply robust cage nets in all designs and materials
Fish farming has changed a lot over the years. The nets used in production now are bigger, deeper and heavier, and are exposed to a totally different range of loads. Consequently, there are tougher criteria for inspections, maintenance and service. That's why choosing the right netting material for your location is extremely important.
Aqualine works closely with customers and suppliers to find the best solutions for fish farming, now and in the future.
