 Raschel and Multi-Nylon Netting

Raschel and Netting

Raschel netting is a very soft nylon knitted netting that has applications where minimising potential damage or injury is paramount. Typical uses of raschel netting are for the capture of small reef fish, bait fish and aquarium fish. Very soft multi-nylon netting, widely used for commercial beach fishing, is now largely obsolete but limited stocks are still available.

  • Very strong netting
  • 4- 90 ply
  • River prawn and stinger nets for smaller sizes
  • Herring and salmon nets for larger sizes


Marine Netting

We can make to order specific net specifications of any size, as well as knotted PE netting suitable for cages, drop nets and traps.

Polyethylene (PE) Netting

Polyethylene Netting
