Aquaculture

Aquaculture, a key industry for sustainable protein, heavily relies on steel for its infrastructure, from fish cages to processing facilities.

Stainless steel’s durability and corrosion resistance make it essential for withstanding the demanding aquatic environments.

Our commitment to innovation and quality ensures that aquaculture operators have access to materials that not only meet their structural requirements but also contribute to sustainable and environmentally responsible operations.

Stainless steel’s role in aquaculture is diverse. Innovative use of high-strength, corrosion-resistant steel nets in aquaculture presents significant ecological and, over time, economic benefits compared to traditional plastic nets.

Fish farmed in aquacultures is continuously increasing and aquaculture trends are moving towards offshore and onshore operations. Onshore farms don’t need complex netting systems, but offshore aquacultures can benefit greatly from the durability and strength of steel nets, capable of withstanding harsh conditions.

This shift not only enhances operational safety but opens new possibilities for sustainable aquaculture development.
