Nets for Aquaculture can be any net used in the operation and management of fish farming/ wildlife management or even fishing fleets. Aquaculture entails the science, art, and business of cultivating marine or freshwater food fish or shellfish, such as oysters, clams, salmon, and trout, under controlled conditions.
Some entities that use Gill or entanglement nets also can be considered aquaculture in some circles. But for our purposes, we will only be speaking of nets that are used in the operations of farming fish, and other aquatic animals for food in a controlled environment.
Due to the ever stricter environmental regulations as well as tendency of costs reduction in production, fish farming current trend is more and more oriented towards the use of bigger off-shore cages.
Furthermore, the increased volume of the farming capacity, as well as improving the life conditions of animals, can also increase the quantity of production.
Main consequences of these trends are:
1. production in rougher conditions;
2. higher risk due to the increased value of product in the cage;
3. Lesser possibilities for inspection and sites maintenance;
In view of these trends, high reliability of the net cages is an essential prerequisite.The reliability of the net cages, i.e. the capability to retain fish avoiding therefore the risk of escape, depends on the following factors:
1. Netting breaking strength;
2. Loss of strength due to wear and tear of net for use;
3. High quality of assembled products;
The above elements can be hugely affected by raw materials used for nets manufacture as well as the method adopted for construction.
Fully aware of all these aspects, Badinotti, as one of the major net suppliers, uses the most modern machinery offering a wide range of knotless netting in nylon, polyester, polypropylene, and polyethylene for aquaculture application.
Our European production sites can boast a large production capacity, offering therefore excellent delivery times, thanks to the midland location in Europe
In the beginning of 2007 Badinotti Slovakia established a new manufacturing unit just close to the the production plant.
Badinotti’s Netloft are able to produce both handily and automatic machine sewing type, using the best and modern technology in the market.
