Single & Pair Trawling

The Design of all SNG Trawls are tailored to the fishing vessels specifications, the objective is for optimal towing speed while trawling.

Our designs are specific to the various target species. We use only the best quality products that the market has to offer, and as a result our trawls will have a longer life expectancy compared to trawls made with lesser quality products.

Helix Self Spreading Technology, PEPA Ropes, Nylex Ropes, Braided Nylon Ropes and Twisted Nylon both in RHL and LHL. These are our main products used in the construction of our trawls.

Helix Self Spreading Trawls

These ropes have Hydrodynamic Technology; the trawl will shoot and haul easily and will keep its shape and continue to fish while turning. These trawls will come with 4 colours BLUE Head Panel, RED Port Side Panel, GREEN Starboard Side Panel and Yellow FOOT Panel.

Pepa Trawls

These ropes are like the Helix but don`t have the Hydrodynamic Technology feature. They will also shoot and haul easily. These trawls will come with 4 colours BLUE Head Panel, RED Port Side Panel, GREEN Starboard Side Panel and Yellow FOOT Panel.

Nylex Trawls

These ropes are made with nylon fibre and have a 12 strand construction, they are high in strength. These trawls will come with 4 colours BLUE Head Panel, RED Port Side Panel, GREEN Starboard Side Panel and Yellow FOOT Panel.

Braided Nylon Trawls

These ropes are made with nylon fibre and have a tight braided construction, the main features are the  water repellent twine, there is no shrinking or swelling of the twine, and it has a firmed and fixed diameter during use.

Twisted Nylon Trawls

Both in RHL & LHL

These ropes are made with nylon fibre and have a 3 strand construction, the main features are the twine is water repellent, there is no shrinking or swelling of the twine, and it has a firmed and fixed diameter during use. These trawls are most commonly used for pair trawling because of the added stretch factor.

Trawl Tunnels

In our trawls there are 2 options for the tunnels one being the conventional 4 panel version and the other being the 8 panel version. The latter option is the most popular choice because of the added benefits, these are a better water flow, more stability, added strength and increased mesh opening.

Pumping Codends (Brailers)

  • We make a wide range of pumping codends (brailer) again these are tailor made to suit the specific requirements of each vessel.

  • Rings or no rings, our pumping codends have 2 options for running the splitter ropes. Option 1 is the familiar stainless steel ring version, and option 2 is a new concept of running the splitter through Dynice handles attached to a Dynet band this creates more flair because the weight of rings has been eliminated.
  • Dynet pumping Section, this reduces shrinkage, the inside and cover is made with Dynet netting this makes the section light and easy to handle and to attach to the fish pump.
  • Wider style pumping codends, with these we are having great success, with some international fish buying describing the fish quality as SUPERB.
