KikkoNet provides the best opportunity for less maintenance, better protection and safety for the fish in today's aquaculture. KikkoNet is a high performance net constructed from PET (polyethylene terephthalate) monofilaments that are double twisted in a hexagonal mesh.

The PET monofilament is a single, hard and smooth plastic wire; the surface area for parasites is limited compared to multifilament wire, where they could deposit the eggs between the fibres. Growth of biofouling is very limited and fouling detaches easily, without occluding meshes thus offering high dissolved oxygen in the water flowing in the cage.

Nets made of KikkoNet offer more protection against predators like seals, sharks and sea lions. The material has a higher abrasion and cut resistance compared to other types of netting. This results in better resistance, with the ultimate advantage in less stress and losses of fishes and less damages to the nets.

Since 2011 KikkoNet is being used in several marine net pens installed worldwide for farming operations of several fish species. Successful experiences are generating more demand as KikkoNet will create more benefits for farmers.
