FISA Introduces its Twisted Knotless “Muketsu” Netting to Japanese Market
Fibras Industriales S.A., commercially known as FISA has taken another leap in its international growth by introducing its Twisted Knotless “Muketsu” Netting to the Japanese Market during the International Technology Expo held in Tokyo between the 21st and 23rd of August 2019.
Twisted Knotless “Muketsu” netting is made of nylon, polyester or polyethylene and its distinctive quality is that each strand runs through the other thus creating a unique product that has greater resistance despite having no knots which leads to lighter weight, allows for better flow of oxygen in the cages and most importantly, reduces friction with the water and other equipment during handling of cages or on fishing vessels.

The Japanese fishing net market is currently dominated by two main players of “Muketsu” Netting that is manufactured by a limited number of companies worldwide. Over the past 36 months FISA increased its production capacity for this product by over 20% thus leading to some excess capacity and the need to search for new markets such as Japan and Asia in general.
