Wide range of certified quality nets

AKVA group offer several types of nets for your cages. Both traditional and proven fibre nets (mainly nylon) made by Egersund Net in Norway, as well as the innovative and promising non-fiber EcoNets (solid PET wire), made by the Italian company Maccaferri. 

As the net is the only barrier keeping your valuable farmed fish inside and predators outside, it is the most critical piece of equipment on a cage farm that prevents fish escapes and other fish losses. Consequently, only the highest quality and design must be used, combined with Norwegian Standard (NS 9415) 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 inspection, 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.
