ANTI-JELLYFISH NETS AND ANTI-BARGE NETS

ANTI-JELLYFISH NETS AND ANTI-BARGE NETS

Effective Jellyfish and Algae Barrier with No Ecological Impact

Our experience in manufacturing aquaculture nets has made possible the development of anti-jellyfish and anti-seaweed nets. Jellyfish swim close to the water’s edge. Almost transparent, they can unexpectedly touch you with their long tentacles, causing intense pain and sometimes leaving unpleasant scars. Their presence can damage fishing and tourism. Among other advantages, the barrier reduces healthcare costs due to jellyfish stings. Thanks to the installation of special anti-jellyfish and anti-seaweed nets, jellyfish are prevent from reaching beaches, significantly reducing many unpleasant events without harming marine fauna.

ACUAMALLA® anti-jellyfish nets serve as a barrier, making it safer for the public when they want to go swimming.

Standard Module for Anti-Jellyfish Nets

The barrier is made up of modules typically measuring 20-25m in length and 3m in depth, plus the tie-down material. The measurements can be customize according to needs, both in length and depth, allowing for barriers of different shapes and designs.

Depending on the area to protect, anchors can be add along the entire barrier, with tie-down bands on the beach or sea. Normally, the system consists of a floating part on the surface and a submerged part (mesh) made of high-tenacity polyethylene, resistant to seawater and UV-treated. This acts as a barrier against jellyfish while allowing the passage of currents.

At the bottom, a submerged net with a mesh size of 10-15mm is attach, allowing the passage of currents and marine flows.

  • The floating part is made of tear-resistant fabric with high UV resistance: the polyethylene mesh wraps around polystyrene foam floats to prevent movement.
  • The submerged part is made of fine polyethylene micro mesh (25mm) to filter particles.
  • Additional mesh band for anchoring.
  • Upper loops for tying.

The ACUAMALLA® jellyfish control net is easy to install and thanks to its design it does not completely cut off the water passage leaving the water flow and sea current.

Additional modules can be added as needed. Modules are connected with hinges or eyelets and can be easily separated for regular operations. The floating ACUAMALLA® nets are design to prevent jellyfish passage even in windy and wavy conditions.

Anti-Jellyfish Nets for Protection

Anti-jellyfish and anti-seaweed nets are the ideal solution for protecting against debris and jellyfish. Our knotless nets made of top-quality Polyethylene (PE) are high-tenacity and durable as they are UV-treat. Especially made for use in saltwater and to withstand deterioration from atmospheric agents and abrasion.

They are available in various colors (white, green, blue, black). White stands out most in the water.

Polyethylene nets are characterize by good abrasion resistance, elasticity, and lightweight.

They also demonstrate high flotation stability.

In contrast, nylon nets have poor UV resistance and deteriorate more quickly. When exposed to sunlight, overall strength decreases, resulting in a higher risk of structural breaks. Additionally, nylon is highly elastic, with a tendency to stretch and contract, requiring re-tensioning a few months after installation.

Installation of Nets for Jellyfish and Algae Barriers

Ensuring complete protection with correct installation; Anti-jellyfish nets allow for installations of varying sizes based on the seabed type and coast. They have a total length ranging from 25 to 200 linear meters and can protect areas equivalent to a football field (0.5 hectares) or tennis courts. The assembly consists of a line of cylindrical floats, placed from the coastline to a maximum depth of 3 meters.

The barrier has a side mesh panel to facilitate anchoring. Depending on the seabed and the surface where the barrier will be install, different anchoring types are recommend.

  • Easy Installation
  • Modules are lightweight and easy for lifeguards to handle.
  • No inflation systems required.
  • No risk of puncture or deflation with subsequent jellyfish passage.
  • Quick and simple maintenance, repositioning, reinstallation, or removal.

The dimensions of the ACUAMALLA® protection mesh allow it to be installed in different types of seabed, adapting to these without much problem.

Removable floating anti-jellyfish net designed for short-term installations

Anti-jellyfish nets and anti-seaweed nets can be supply as a standalone or detachable barrier that can be attach to an existing swimming barrier. The installation of our net is simple and non-invasive to the protected area. It’s an indispensable but discreet and non-permanent aid. Various anchoring kits are available, varying based on the specific installation location.

Standard and Customizable Modules

The anti-algae and anti-jellyfish nets consist of standard 30m length and 1m depth modules. Needs may vary, and the areas to protect may require customized sizes to cover the desired space. Custom modules can be create both in length and depth to meet specific needs.

REMOVABLE System

For any need, the net can be quickly remove. Indeed, to preserve the environment, it’s advisable to dismantle the system at the end of the season so that nature can reclaim its spaces. The assembly of Anti-Jellyfish Nets can also be done quickly and easily, contributing to cost containment.

Very simple operation: polystyrene floats are attach to a net, between 50 and 100 meters long, which can thus float. It is usually install along the coast, about twenty meters from the shore.

Our ACUAMALLA® mesh prevents the passage of jellyfish and even other animals or garbage that comes along with the current, creating a clean and safe space for people visiting the sea.

Containment barriers with anti-jellyfish and anti-algae mesh

Now it’s possible to swim freely without worrying about jellyfish. We offer high-strength floating barrier nets suitable for protecting bathing areas. They stop solids, debris, oil and hydrocarbon stains, foams, mucilage, and, in general, everything floating or moving in the water up to 1.5-3 meters deep. Thanks to these characteristics, the barrier is ideal for preventing jellyfish and seaweed. They consist of a rigid floating part and a less visible submerged fine mesh capable of adapting to variations in the seabed, thus creating artificial pools near the coast, safe from jellyfish stings.

Jellyfish represent a danger for bathers, because of their transparent color they can be confused in the water and sting people, thanks to the ACUAMALLA® mesh they are prevented from entering the tourist area, keeping people safe.

Safer and Cleaner Waters for Pollution-Free Bathing Areas

To keep jellyfish away from shores, we have developed a protection system against the incursion of these animals, especially the dreaded box jellyfish, which are small and particularly irritating. The system offers bathing areas protection against jellyfish and all types of surface contaminants. It also helps limit management costs, as well as difficulties in assembly, installation, disassembly, repair, transport, and storage.

It guarantees clear and transparent water without jellyfish for the enjoyment of swimmers, both young and old. Additionally, the micro-mesh fabric filters surface residues like foams, phenols, oils, minerals, tar residues, or floating substances. Pollution from oil spillages is, in fact, one of the main dangers to marine health. This risk can be limited thanks to pollution barriers, emergency operations for ports or docks, protecting oil loading and unloading areas.

Floating containment barriers are perfect for calm waters and weak currents, but they also adapt to situations with waves and strong winds.

In addition to protecting bathing areas, they are use for oil plants, industries, and environmental emergency equipment of various sizes to contain spills of polluting liquids in seas, streams, and lakes. Their lightness and maneuverability make them particularly useful for firefighters and emergency services, as they are quickly assembled and easy to transport in regular vans.

Safety for Swimmers and Fish

The suspension system maintains mesh stability, preventing it from following strong currents or waves. It is capable of absorbing part of the generated force.

Consequently, the tensions it is subject to decrease, increasing its lifespan. In fact, the net remains almost vertical despite movements, guaranteeing effective protection.

Total Integration and Environmental Respect

Zero impact on marine life

The nets produce no chemical effects, are not made of metal so they don’t rust, and therefore don’t harm the territory in any way. Additionally, they are not fix and don’t require inflation systems on the coast. Anti-jellyfish nets are design so that individuals and fish cannot get trapp or injured. The submerged mesh in white color is the most visible from afar.

All modules are very lightweight and easy to handle; they can be joined or separated easily to allow passage of ships or to create protected areas.

Finally, installation is quick and simple and is carried out without external interventions. The modules do not constitute a permanent barrier but present flexibility and adaptability to meet specific needs and circumstances. Since the assembly must be place in the bathing area near the beach, it is not necessary to mark its presence with buoys. However, for swimmers’ safety,

It is advisable to timely indicate relevant warnings. For example, prohibition of passing over or under the net and not swimming near it in case of strong waves.

The ACUAMALLA® jellyfish net does not represent a danger to marine life since the animals are not trapped and, since it is not made of metal, they are not harmed.

Socio-economic Impact of Jellyfish Proliferations

Coasts are facing increases in jellyfish proliferations due to a wide variety of human activities, including maritime transport, exploitation of biological resources, discharges, along with the global impact of climate change. Jellyfish proliferations represent a growing threat to human and coastal activities (mainly leisure and aquaculture). Millions of bathers are affect by jellyfish stings.

Resulting in high costs for first aid services. The situation has worsened in recent years due to the emergence of new and more harmful variations.

The goal is to reduce the impact of these pests as they frequently cause economic disasters. As a measure to face the increase in jellyfish proliferations, protected bathing areas are create.

Our jellyfish nets are mainly use on public, private, and hotel beaches to protect swimmers from jellyfish in a limited area. They also demarcate a safe swimming area free of algae, debris, and rubble. The presence of anti-jellyfish containment systems prevents jellyfish from approaching bathers and stinging them.

As a result, the number of tourists increases significantly. Facilities are usually well receive by tourists and residents. On coasts where the nets have already been install, there has been an increase in tourist flow of over 100%.

Conclusions

Anti-jellyfish and anti-seaweed nets protect swimmers by providing clean and safe bathing areas. Specifically designed for long-term use in marine environments.

The protective barrier against algae and jellyfish is environmentally friendly and, at the same time, has very high functionality and efficiency. It represents a solution to all problems caused by jellyfish and algae in the field of high socio-economic impact activity: fishing, tourism, and human health.
