Mussel farming nets


Rom Plastica developed this new net type to optimize processing in the mussel farming sector.

The technical features of the net allow::

  • elimination of certain stages of mussel production, with considerable time savings;
  • avoidance of product loss, as this type of net allows loose mussels (which were previously thrown away) to be re-used;
  • attainment of a more homogeneous product.

This tubular net is made of extruded polypropylene. It has a dual-structure mesh. The outer part of the mesh, which is rhomboid shaped, is manufactured using a thread with a wider cross-section, making the net extremely strong and suitable for offshore operations.

The inner part of the mesh, made up of a tighter rhombus pattern made of thinner thread, ensures:

  • avoidance of immediate mussel ‘leakage’
  • the net is not lacerated by the mussels themselves as they grow.

All materials and colorants used are suitable for the production of foodstuffs as per the laws in force.
