Commencing net making services to the fledgling Aquaculture industry in Tasmania in the late 1980’s were the original staff of Nets Tasmania. As the opportunity of fish farming in the Southern waters unfolded, men and women joined the company mostly from backgrounds in the Tasmanian marine industries and commercial fishing.
Enthusiasm for learning the tradition of net making gleaned from research and extensive travelling and the skills already in the hands of Don Latham and his staff were combined into a business to match the developing fish farm industries. The meeting and fulfilment of these opportunities was the energy that fuelled the early days of the company.
At Nets Tasmania our pride is in producing high quality nets and associated equipment from skilled hands and our long experience of specializing in aquaculture industries. Our nets use latest techniques of design and development and incorporate the best of traditional net making practice. We make fish farming nets for all species: Salmon, Tuna, Trout, Snapper, Kingfish, Barramundi, Perch and Asian commercial species.
We also provide predator control netting and systems for exclusion of birds, seals and sharks, as separate prevention nets or integrated into fish stock nets.
