Following the successful launch of its Supra HDPE Netting during the offshore conference in Ensenada, Mexico and its North America presentation during the Seafood Expo in Boston, Fibras Industriales S.A., commercially known as FISA will introduce it’s 3RDgeneration netting to the European market at the Seafood Expo Global in Brussels.
FISA will have a stand together with Sea Protein S.A., its sister company dedicated to scallop farming, in Hall 7 Stand 7-1749.
Supra is the result of many year R&D together with feedback received from FISAs customers that have used its PE netting for predator protection and fish cages since its introduction at the Aquasur trade show in Puerto Montt, Chile, in October 2014.
Initial feedback from customers presented the product during the Ensenada offshore conference and Boston Seafood Expo have been extremely positive, with many large initial trial orders already been made. Yoni Radzinski, Commercial Director of FISA, stated that these are nice sized trial orders from various select customers that have been highly impressed by the netting and wanted immediate access to the advantages of this product. Mr. Radzinski stated that “considering this is a high end product that was launched less than 3 months ago, the sales are greatly surpassing our expectations and it is now time for our European customers to enjoy the benefits of this product”.
Mr. Radzinski is convinced that European customers will show great interest in this 3rd generation anti predator netting, helping them tackle fish escape.
Since 2013 the company has invested heavily in new machinery. The investment included growth in extrusion capacity, new netting machines, depth stretching equipment and a brand new 25,000m2 net loft.
During November 2014 the group said some customers had turned to FISA to jointly develop new polyethylene netting for their fish farms after seeing the product at Aquasur and thus has kept to its promise and is now ready to present the product to additional customers.
FISA is the largest multi-filament fishing net factory in the western hemisphere with over 70 years in the market and over the past years has extended its line of products to include monofilament netting for aquaculture, trawl nets and sports netting.
The company manufactures a full range of netting for purse seine fishing, trawling, long line fishing and fish farming cages.
