On arrival from the customer, nets are dealt with utilising strict segregation protocols to avoid cross contamination.
All nets are then washed and sterilised and left to drip dry prior to be taken into the net station for inspection.
Nets are hung up and each panel is manually inspected and made ready for testing and repair. The net is then strength tested with our calibrated strength testing machines above and below the water line, and the base.
Our highly trained staff then make the nets ready for repair, add weighted lines or adapt the net to the customer’s specification.
Each net is recorded in Highland Aqua Team’s manual and database and a certificate for each net is sent to the customer.
Net washing is the process of cleaning and maintaining fish farming nets.
