Fishing Net
Today, synthetic fibre becomes the most popular material for fishing net. In China, net material is nylon and polythene, whose consumption amount is 6,000 tons and 20,000 to 30,000 tons per year respectively. Under same mesh strength, the fishing net made by UHMWPE fibre is 50% lighter than that made by polythene fibre. When weight is the same, specification of the former is larger, which can increase catching amount and reduce net weight and water resistance so as to enhance trawling speed and decrease energy consumption. Now, offshore fishing industry has become a new trend, so the consumption of UHMWPE fibre will increase considerably.
