Closed structures

Safety through technology

Closed structures in plastic, concrete or fiberglass are evolving. These can be closed flexible bags or stiffer structures, and liceskirts mounted on the upper part of the fish net. The purpose of floating closed fish cage systems is to preserve the environment around the sites, control the water quality of the water and prevent lice from spreading. Closed systems change the physic of the structure. Forcing the water to flow around and underneath the structure, instead of flowing through as for traditional fish nets.

The newly developed load model in AquaSim takes into account the pressure inside and outside such structures, as well as the flow passing by, either the structure is stiff or flexible.
