Thomas, Saly N (2009) Netting specifications and maintenance of cages for finfish culture. In: Course manual: National training on cage culture of seabass. Imelda, Joseph and Joseph, V Edwin and Susmitha, V,(eds.) CMFRI & NFDB, Kochi, pp. 23-32.



A cage is a space enclosed with some type of mesh forming a container for aquatic animals to grow. It is typically box-shaped or tube like structure with a rope system which supports the netting material, gives shape and allows for tying to the raft unit. In box type cages, the cage is constructed of four panels at the sides and one bottom panel. Anti-predator nets are deployed around the cage to prevent entrance of predators such as sharks and sea lions into the cages. An additional net would be provided on top of the cage to prevent bird predation.
