Aquaculture Nets / Cages

According to FAO, aquatic food production is forecast to increase and provide a growing population with healthy and nutritious foods. Many communities across the world rely on aquaculture supplies as a source of food-security and employment. 


Maccaferri Kikkonet is the net for technology-driven fish farming. Made from polyester monofilament double twisted mesh, Kikkonet offers a 20 year+ design life. The mesh is structurally stable, enabling net pens to be used in more exposed conditions than before; also, its excellent stiffness repels predators with ease, preventing biting, entanglement and chafing damage. The smooth gloss surface of the mesh means less biofouling and less down-time due to cleaning operations.
