Protecting Fish In Shark-Infested Waters

Developing Better Cage Netting

By Ken Robertson.

Sharks are predators to warmwater aquaculture that are not stopped by traditional cage nets when they seek the fish contained inside. Work by the author with several international entities defined suitable lab testing methods that led to effective material selections and configurations for shark-resistant netting. Field trials in the Bahamas confirmed the strength of the new net, which is now available as a commercial product.
