Conwed™ Netting offers superior performance for aquaculture applications.
Aquaculture, or aquafarming, is farming fish, crustaceans, mollusks, aquatic plants, algae, and other organisms. Aquafarming implies some form of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. Various containment materials are used for netting in aquaculture fish enclosures worldwide.
From containment to harvest, aquaculture sector farmers worldwide rely on Conwed™ Netting to protect their livelihoods. Our nets and mesh materials are selected for multiple reasons, including design feasibility, material strength, cost, and corrosion resistance.
Ideal applications include:
- Oysters, mussels, crustaceans, and mollusk farming
- Shellfish and shrimp farming
- Aquatic plants and algae
- Marine organisms and cultures
- Fishing materials and accessories
- Shading and containment materials
Aquaculture netting or mesh is widely used in containment, protection, and packaging applications by fish, oyster, and clam farmers. Conwed aquaculture netting offers non-toxic, anti-rust, and chemical-resistant features with superior UV stabilizers for extended service life. Our USDA-approved netting is manufactured in the U.S. and available worldwide.
Farmers use our durable and lightweight Conwed™ Protective Netting over ponds and other open-water areas to prevent egrets, herons, seagulls, and other birds from devouring their aquatic animal investment. In clam farming, our netting can be applied over seeded grow beds in sub-tidal or inter-tidal zones to help protect clams from natural predators.
