Farm salmon fishing in Norway. Norway is the biggest producer of farmed salmon in the world, with more than one million tonnes produced each year.

Dyneema® has developed the first ever bio-based HMPE fibre which is sourced from renewable mass-balanced feedstock. This innovation helps to reduce the reliance on fossil fuel while maintaining the same performance, strength and longevity as conventional Dyneema® fibre. Aquaculture nets made with bio-based Dyneema® fibre have a carbon footprint up to seven times lower than polyamide nets and up to 15 times lower than nets made with generic HMPE fibre. The benefit is a reduction of CO2 emissions of up to 16 tons and 36 tons respectively per average size containment net.
