Fans of the movie Free Willy may enjoy watching aquatic escapes, but fish farm owners definitely wouldn’t share that sentiment when it comes to their own stock swimming away. For this reason, aquaculture nets made from Geleen, The Netherlands-based resin manufacturer DSM Dyneema’s new Dyneema polyethylene (PE) fibres should come as a welcome development.

Dyneema fibres are designed to float on water while being extremely durable and resistant to moisture, UV light and chemicals, which means reliable containment of fish and fewer running repairs. These characteristics also allow for use of thinner twine that offers less surface area for harmful algae to grow, improving cleanliness and oxygenation for healthier fish.
