Following the successful Central American launch of its Supra HDPE Netting during the offshore conference in Ensenada, Mexico followed by the North America presentation at the Seafood Expo in Boston and the European introduction during Seafood Expo Global in Brussels and the Atlantic Fair in Faroe Islands, Fibras Industriales S.A., commercially known as FISA will now present it’s third generation netting to the African continent during World Aquaculture 2017 organised by the World Aquaculture Society.

FISA will be exhibiting in booth number 53 at World Aquaculture that will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre between 26 and 30 of June.

Supra is the result of many years of research and development together with 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.

Initial feedback from customers presented the product during the Ensenada offshore conference and Boston Seafood Expo had been extremely positive, with many large initial trial orders.

Yoni Radzinski, Commercial Director of FISA, mentioned that these trial orders were made from various select customers that had been highly impressed by the netting and wanted immediate access to the advantages of this product.

Mr Radzinski stated that, “the extremely fast acceptance of this product in the American continent was followed by great interest on the part of European customers following Seafood Expo Global in Brussels and Atlantic Fair in Faroe Islands.”

“Supra is a high end product that was launched less than six months ago and sales are greatly surpassing our expectations with new customers already showing interest from totally new markets and for uses we had not even though of initially.”

Mr Radzinski is convinced that customers from the African Continent will show great interest in this 3rd generation anti predator netting, helping them tackle fish escape.

Since 2013 FISA 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.
