    In the inland water bodies there are predators like crabs, certain type of eels which can destroy the nets and penetrate into the cage. In such water bodies Braided HDPE net having 2 mm to 2.5 mm thickness can be used as outer net to prevent the predators. Otherwise 1.5 mm twisted HDPE net can also be used. The specification of inner cage can be decided depending on the species, from HDPE 0.5 mm/10 mm mesh size to 1.0 mm/ 22 mm which will be cost effective and durable. Predator birds are also common hence proper prevention net also must be used.
