Tilapia

Pros

Hvalpsund Net - Cage Net for Tilapia - Tilapia can be seen biting and chewing on net, twine and rope and therefore it is important to take care when designing the net pens

This fresh water delicacy is being farmed intensively across the Middle East, over Africa and in South and Central America.

 

In the Middle East the fish are being farmed mainly in land based fish farms.

 

In Africa Tilapia is being farmed in net pens in some of the big lakes across the African continent.

 

Also in South America Tilapia is being farmed in lakes – and as an example it is typical to place Tilapia farms in the hydro lakes formed behind dams in Brazil.

 

Tilapia can be seen biting and chewing on net, twine and rope and therefore it is important to take care when designing the net pens.

Pros

Hvalpsund Net - Cage nets - Farming fish in tropical conditions means a lot fouling is growing on the pens all year round

Net pens for tilapia farming in lakes are often set up in combination with an outer predator net.

 

Tiger fish in Africa and Piranhas in South America are just some of the predator fish that can attack net pens with tilapia.

 

From with the net pens – the materials are being attacked. As tilapia bite and chew on the net it is important to make sure that there are no lose twine or rope ends inside the net pen that the tilapia can catch.

Dyneema®

Pros

Hvalpsund Net - Dyneema - You also reduce the amount of net coatings such as antifouling liquid needed to coat the net. That alone can pay for the slight increase in cost of using Dyneema® over traditional materials as nylon and polyester

Why does Dyneema make an excellent net for tilapia farming?

 

The Dyneema® firbers special properties when it comes to superior abrasion resistance, light weight and ultra-high strength makes it the perfect match.

 

Not only is the Dyneema® fiber reducing damages related to fish bite, the net made from Dyneema® takes longer to get fouled That in turn ensures higher water flow and better oxygen levels which increases fish welfare and a leads to better FCR.

 

Another clear advantage is that Dyneema® has excellent properties when it comes to keeping predators out of the net pens.

 

Reduced service and logistic costs are elements that contributes to the fact that Dyneema® is an excellent choice for cod farmers.
