10/03/2017: FISA to launch SUPRA HDPE netting at Seafood Expo North America

Peruvian manufacturer Fibras Industriales S.A. (FISA) will be presenting its newly developed Supra HDPE netting during the Seafood Expo North America to take place in Boston between March 19th to 21st

This product is fruit of years of in house research and development based on feedback received from FISA's 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.

Customers have been impressed with the quality of the netting presented in 2014 and have continuously been giving feedback in order to make the netting best satisfy their needs.

“The new product is a 3rd Generation PE netting providing superior breaking strengths, while maintaining compact design and light weight”, said Yoni Radzinski, Commercial Director of FISA.

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.

FISA is a sister company of the Peruvian scallop farmer Sea Protein S.A., which will be presenting jointly with FISA in the Peruvian pavilion, Booth 2515.

Sea Protein harvested over 200 tons of scallops during 2016 and expects to harvest a similar volume during 2017 despite the heavy mortality in all its farming areas (Sechura, Samanco and Pisco) as a result of red tides and low salinity resulting from heavy rain that led to extremely elevated flow of sweet water from rivers.

All these events will lead Peru to reduce exports of Scallops to record low numbers probably below 3,000 tones said Elihai Radzinski, director of Sea Protein.

The original plans for 2017 were to export above 300 tones.
