Full Exclusion Netting Barrier

Pacific Netting formed a partnership with the owner and engineer in order to reduce entrainment and impingement of adult paddlefish and other game fish through facility turbines. Brought in early to the process, we provided samples of netting in order to study behavior of fish against netting barriers, and to assure the acceptance of our solution by biologist and the fish committee. We worked close with the engineering firm to insure an effective debris management system and fail-safe deployment that was just 10 feet from the nearest turbine intake. After 8 years, the project is still 100% successful, without any failures, minimal maintenance and repair.
