Aquaculture


PROBLEM SHARED
A clam farmer was suffering a significant loss of clams he was growing in bags placed on the sea floor. Predatory animals were chewing through the mesh in order to feed on the immature clams. Prior attempts to strengthen the mesh, while successful, were not environmentally compatible.

PROBLEM SOLVED
Apex analyzed the strength of the current mesh the clam farmer was using, with a special attention paid to the tenacity of the yarns being used. Apex then created a fabric identical to the one being used, however, incorporated a high tenacity mono-filament yarn into the mesh.

RESULT REALIZED
With this newly developed fabric, strengthened by a yarn similar to fishing line, the customer is now positioned to employ clam bags offering significantly lower clam loss.
