Mainstream uses Copper-Alloy Nets


Mainstream Canada’s Plover Point farm near Tofino, B.C. Canada is the first salmon farm in North America to use copper-alloy nets instead of conventional nylon mesh nets. Two of the 12 pens are made of copper-alloy mesh, and have been installed as part of a two-year research trial in partnership with the ICA and EcoSea. The copper-alloy nets stay naturally clean and are nearly impervious to predators.
