Aquaculture experts working in the Philippines showed significant interest on the distinct advantages of KikkoNet systems
The AQUATECH, Aquaculture Expo & Convention Philippines, is an annual technical event in the Philippines focusing on Aquaculture. Held on July 20-21, 2016 at Summit Ridge Hotel, Tagaytay City, the convention seeks to provide information on new technologies and practices to the rapidly growing aquaculture sector.
The event was opened by Senator Cynthia Villar, Chair of the Philippines Senate Committee on Agricultural and Food. Our product specialist, Mr. Marco Montagnoli, flew in from our regional headquarters in Malaysia for the event, which provided the opportunity for suppliers of equipment, supplies and services from all over Asia and the Pacific Countries to present their products to industry decision-makers.
Maccaferri Philippines Inc. was pleased to use the convention as a vehicle to launch KikkoNet Net Pens and Cages to the Philippines’ Aquaculture Industry. Significant interest was shown in Kikkonet UV stabilized, PET monofilament, double-twisted hexagonal mesh particularly, since the product offers some very distinct advantages over more traditional nylon nets. A 15+ year design life, reduced biofouling, easy-to-clean product, which offer better shape retention in ocean currents, all contribute to increasing farmers’ yields.
Maccaferri’s ability to offer technical support in the design, manufacture and deployment generated significant interest from aquaculture experts.
