The United Nations estimate that demand for fish will double in the coming years. How can the commercial fishing industry meet this demand?
The answer can be found in more sustainable fishing techniques that optimize catch and production, cost less money (and fuel) and are kinder overall to the environment. One of the solutions can be found in fish farming. there is a high demand for next-generation nets and ropes that are strong, light and flexible, and, most importantly, shark resistant.
DSM, together with NET Systems and The Cape Eleuthera Institute, a non profit marine research centre in the Bahamas have developed a shark-resistant netting material made with Dyneema.
