Protection Above & Below the Water
Use plastic netting for growing, feeding and trapping applications on fish farms, sea farms, fish hatcheries, catfish farms, shrimp farms, oyster farms and many other applications for making cages, trays and traps. Plastic netting also makes a great Predator barrier. It is durable and lightweight and an excellent way to ward off egrets, herons, seagulls, nuisance birds and birds of prey.

Plastic Cage Netting
One of the most convenient forms of fish production is cage netting – the practice of farming fish for food in floating cages. Cage farming can be employed by any individual who has access to a natural or artificial pond or lake. The outstanding advantage of cage culture is that it permits "fish gardening" in bodies of water that aren't suitable for more intensive aquaculture.
Heavy duty aquaculture cage netting helps keep out cormorants, loons, turtles, otters, crabs and other predators. Select the aperture, or hole size, you need for protection and maximum water flow. Made from long-lasting UV stabilized polyethylene (PE) resin for maximum service life. Offered in 48”-wide rolls or cut-to-size pieces to for easy fabrication of trays, traps or pens.
You can also fabricate your own grow-out bags. Plastic Tubular Aquaculture Nets are made from the same UV stabilized polyethylene (PE) as our aquaculture cage net. As oysters grow they are placed in mesh bags that have openings small enough to contain the seed but large enough to allow proper water flow. The grow-out bags will hold these seeds for 3-4 weeks or until they are large enough to be sieved and placed into larger mesh bags. These floating bags help the seeds tap into nutrients and oxygen rich surface water enabling them to grow very fast. Once oysters have made it out of the floating bags they are bottom planted to finish off their life cycle.
Bird Exclusion Plastic Netting
As a way to separate your fish from potential predators the most effective solution includes the use of plastic netting. Predator net provides both physical protection as well as a visible deterrent. Marine cage culture farms will use durable, lightweight predator net as perimeter protection at the shoreline and stretched over the tops of ponds and raceways to keep out birds of prey.
Birdnet (predator net) is produced from UV stabilized polypropylene (PP) in rolls up to 17-feet wide.
Accessories like Polyclips and cable ties help make any installation easier.
Stand Pipe Filters
Plastic mesh filter tubes are made from the same UV stabilized resin as our Cage Netting.
Every pond water garden, whether plants-only or stocked, benefits by some form of water circulation system to stay clean, healthy and algae free. At the heart of this system is the pump and aerator.
Our Stand Pipe Filters will help to keep debris away from your pump and aerator.
Choose from one of four standard sizes to fit over schedule 40 PVC pipe.
