The necessity for minimization of escapes in modern sea farming is persuading more and more farmers to move to nets made of Dyneema®
Proteus incoming orders for this revolutionary material in 2006 have tripled compared to 2005.
Apart from the resistance against sea bream biting, nets made of Dyneema® are extremely light compared to the nylon ones. For this reason they are preferred for large cages (circumference>70m), as they are much easier to handle with the usual farming tools.
Proteus, being one of the pioneer in applying Dyneema® in Mediterranean aquaculture, has developed a specialized know-how in the construction of complete nets made of Dyneema®
Dyneema® is a trade mark of DSM, Netherlands
