High tensile stainless steel as a sustainable material for aquaculture

  • The project aims for the development of a new material system from high tensile stainless steel wires as net material with environmentally compatible antifouling properties for off-shore fish farm cages. Therefore, current net materials from textiles (polyamide) shall be partially replaced by high strength stainless steel in order to have a more environmentally compatible system which meets the more severe mechanical loads (waves, storms, predators (sharks)). With a new antifouling strategy current issues like reduced ecological damage (e.g. due to copper disposal), lower maintenance costs (e.g. cleaning) and reduced durability shall be resolved.
