Copper alloy wire and net for fish farm cages 

As part of its ongoing efforts to offer high quality products, Halcor Group has established a partnership with the Japanese Mitsubishi Shindoh company. Under the terms of the partnership Fitco, a subsidiary of Halcor Group in Greece, produces a special copper alloy wire (UR3O®) for fish farm cages. This wire (UR30®), with a copper content of more than 60 per cent, retains the properties of copper, an environmentally friendly, highly durable, corrosion resistant and 100% recyclable material. The benefits of using copper alloy wire and net for fish farm cages are significant, and include:
 
  • Increased cage life and retention of cage volume
  • Fish escape deterrence
  • Cleaner sea environment and reduced fish mortality rates
  • Reduced concentration of bio-contamination and cage mesh cleaning.
