Two basic types of material have been used: rigid polymer and metals. Rigid polymer mesh materials such as Netlon® or Durethene® are formed from PE by an extrusion process. They are usually square or diamond mesh, are readily available in a range of mesh sizes and are semi-rigid rather than rigid and thus may be conveniently stored in rolls. 1 kg m-2). The durability and performance characteristics of rigid plastic meshes have not been evaluated fully although there is some published information on Netlon®.

2% manganese are widely used for this purpose (Chong 1977). Another technique to suppress corrosion is the use of protective coatings. Metallic coatings may be applied by dipping, electroplating, spraying, cladding or cementation. Inorganic oxide, phosphate or chromate coatings are formed by chemical treatment. A variety of paints, varnishes, plastics, lacquers and rubber compounds may also be used to isolate the metal from the corrosive environment, although few of the above protective coating methods are appropriate for metal meshes and even fewer are appropriate for use in cages designed to produce fish for food.

One advantage of increasing bag size is that costs per unit volume fall. This is one reason for the trend towards the use of increasingly large rearing units in intensive marine fish culture. In western Europe the 100–150-m3 cages used to 34 Chapter 3 Fig. 1 The perimeter lengths of various cage shapes of the same surface area. rear Atlantic salmon in the 1960s and 1970s have gradually been replaced by cages of up to fifty times this volume. However, large cages require more sophisticated materials and technology and they can be more difficult to manage, requiring several staff to perform even the most simple of routine operations.
