Artificial seaweed, produced with environmental-friendly and recyclable PVC, provides the fish with an authentic and protective habitat – completely free of micro plastic fragments.
Traditional artificial seaweed made out of plastic has to be replaced every 6-7 months. Our seaweed, made out of thermoplastic PVC, lasts up to three times longer in sea water. After that, the product can be returned to Protan and recycled into new PVC products. Furthermore, by choosing Protan’s artificial seaweed the amount of rope needed is significantly reduced.
In order to keep the seaweed from moving in waves and currents, Protan has replaced environmentally harmful lead sinkers with the magmatic rock type larvikite.
Protan has a vast portfolio of aquaculture textiles in stock at all times, which ensures short delivery times and flexibilty for you as a customer.
