Innovative Net Systems designs and fabricates High End Research Nets and Sampling trawls for Inshore , Near-shore, Off-shore and Ocean Deep. We design gear for use on boats with as little as 10 hp to ships with 2500 hp.
"No!" Your gear is NOT sitting on a shelf in our shop. We create it after you feed us the information we need. Nets are fitted to your boat, your HP, your water conditions and Target Species. We design it and then build it.
In Professional Fisheries Research One Size does NOT fit all.
Environmental Impact Assesment
Innovative Net Systems has 40 years of designing some of the most intricate as well as simplified gears for those situtations where "Off-the-Shelf" standard nets, just will not do what you need.
Internationally known for simple to use and efficient gears used in jungle rivers, open oceans, inland lakes and secluded waterways the world over.
* Yes, the story about the giant croc attack in Borneo is very much true. No, the net did NOT survive!
Why settle for something from the Fred and Barney era of gears when you can have a custom designed gear that does exactly what you need.
