What Kind of Netting Can I Use for Aquaculture?  ACUAMALLA® Netting

What Kind of Netting Can I Use for Aquaculture?  ACUAMALLA® Netting

The objective of aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, including fish, mollusks, crustaceans, also the plants.  Raising aquatic organisms entails major production effort such as, for example, feeding them and, of course, protecting them from predators.  For this reason, ACUAMALLA®® net is a multi-purpose net that can be use in the following ways:

  • salt water or fresh water applications
  • floating cages for fish
  • predator barriers also partitions
  • anti-bird net which protects without harming the birds
  • anti-jellyfish and anti-seaweed netting which allows water to flow through but not jellyfish and seaweed
  • partitions within ponds
  • in scallop farming and other aquatic farming, for the making of cages or sacks.

Raising aquatic organisms necessitates substantial investment in infrastructure.

Because of these diverse uses, the ACUAMALLA®® brand encompasses several different kinds of nets, some of which are polyethylene (POLYHARDWARE® and BAXTOP®®) and others polypropylene (CHICKENMALLA®® and GUACAMALLA®).  Some are extruded, others knitted.  Different roll sizes and mesh sizes of the netting are available, depending on the aquatic organism being farm.

GUACAMALLAS® netting

GUACAMALLAS® net serves to protect the fish or other aquatic organisms you are raising.  It gets install by covering the surface of ponds and denying access to birds and other predators.  It is an anti-bird net that functions as a barrier over ponds and prevents predators from eating the aquatic organisms that are being raise.

bird barrier
GUACAMALLAS® net is use as bird barrier mesh.

This net is make from high-performance polypropylene, is extruded, is lightweight yet very durable, comes in various gauges and sizes, and does not trap or harm birds.  It simply functions as a barrier above the aquatic organisms which are being raise.  It is easily install and adapt to any structure in order to deny access to predators such as pelicans, comorants, seagulls, and herons.

Pond protection
Pond protection is very important for assuring the safety of the aquatic organisms that are being raise.

BAXTOP®® net

BAXTOP®® netting is a multi-purpose net that in aquaculture can be use for fish cages.  It will keep fish within it and is design to absorb the shock of waves.  Fish cages can be all shapes also sizes and can be fix, floating, submerge, or submersible. 

culturing scallops and mussels
BAXTOP®® net can be use for culturing scallops and mussels.

This is why BAXTOP® net can be use in different fish cages, because they are make of polyethylene, which is an excellent material for cage construction because it is durable, flexible, shockproof, resistant to ultraviolet light (UV).

POLYHARDWARE® mesh

This mesh is use as a screen to filter out any objectionable material while still letting water pass through.  This net can also be use for cages or sacks in scallop and mussel farming since it is very flexible and durable, being make of polyethylene.

POLYHARDWARE® can be use for making cages or sacks for raising aquatic organisms.

It is an extruded net that can have square or hexagonal mesh. Also can withstand strong currents since it is make of flexible material.  It can come into direct contact with what is being raise because it is odorless and tasteless.  Hexagonal mesh is use for cages or sacks in scallop and mussel farming since it allows water to flow through, thus facilitating feeding and providing nutrients.

For scallop culture, a net is need that allows water to flow through.  POLYHARDWARE® is ideal for this.

CHICKENMALLA®® net

This net is make of polypropylene.  It is lightweight and very easy to install.  It is resistant to the vast majority of chemicals also the acids.  Being an extruded net, it allows light to pass through it.  It is UV treat, as well as treat to make it impermeable to water, and that is why algae does not stick to this netting.

An advantage of CHICENMALLA® for pond protection is the availability of several different mesh sizes

UV treatment means that this net can be use in direct sunlight without warping or discoloration.  The net that gets use on a structure should be chose base on its design and fish size.  The net gets place at different deeps depending on its size, the currents, and the aquatic organisms being farm.
