Copper’s Impact—Improved Fish Harvest

Innovative aquaculture techniques, such as copper-alloy nets, can improve global harvest numbers. In contrast to synthetic netting materials:

  • Copper-alloy nets resist corrosion. Their natural ability to stay clean prevents them from clogging with organic matter, improving water circulation and leading to healthier fish, higher yields, lower costs and reduced environmental impact as a result of increased water flow.
  • Antibiotics are not needed and the need for net cleaning is greatly reduced. The strength of copper alloys aids in fish development.
  • Predators, including seals and sharks, cannot reach the fish.
  • Recyclable copper-alloy nets provide a responsible solution and promotes a sustainable environment.
