This is the most popular type of packing in the market. The fishing net will be packed by a piece, and then it will be put into an individual plastic bag. The normal weight per bag is about 50-80kg, so that it is not very difficult to handle in loading, unloading and storage.

Packed by Pallet

Some clients prefer the fishing net packed by pallets. It could be packed by plastic bag firstly, and later the bags will be packed by pallets. To make it easy in transportation and storage, the overall size of pallet would be about 1.1×1.1×1.0m, the total weight is about 400kg.

Packed by Carton

To be packed by carton is another choice for you. The fishing net will be packed individually by transparent plastic bag firstly, after that, several pieces of fishing net will be packed by carton. The weight of each piece of fishing net will be very light, the total weight of carton is about 20-30kg, so that this type of packing is suitable for gill net or cast net.

Packed by Piece

If the weight of each piece of fishing net is over 500kg, it will be packed by piece without any covering. It is suitable for the trawling nets, purse seine nets and fish cages.

How to pack the nets

The packing of fishing net is very important, it should be folded together in an orderly manner to avoid entanglement. The packing of different fishing nets might be a little different.

Nylon Monofilament Net

The nylon monofilament net or nylon multi-monofilament net is very light per piece. the normal weight is about 0.2-10kg. You can see the videos as below:

The normal steps of packing are:

1. Wrap the net back and forth around the shelf.

2. Tie the string in different parts of the net.

3. Put the label on the net.

4. Put the net into one individual bag.

If the fishing nets are trawling net, purse seine net or fish cages, the packing is easier. It will be folded and fastened by rope together directly. It is too heavy to use the oil press machines.

To make it be loaded and unloaded easily, there will be one or more loop on the ropes, so that it could be loaded by the fork of forklift.

How to do the label

Most of time, there is one label for each piece of fishing net. The information in the label includes the specification of products, applications and information of manufacturer.

It is used to help the fishermen identify if the specification is the same as the net he want. It also can help the fishermen to find the contact of the manufacturer if they want to buy it again in the future.

So the design of label is very important. Most of time, it should be easy to identify. The fishermen will find the same design if they want to buy it again, because they think the quality of fishing net with the same label should be same.

Most of time, the lable will be printed on the cardboard. The words should be clear and durable. The label is usually stuck on the tighly tied rope with the net. So that it could not be disappeared during transportation and storage.

How to do the ship mark

Most of time, we need identify the information of products in the plastic bag or carton by the ship mark outside. So the information of the ship mark should be same as the label inside.

The most important information of the ship mark is the specification of the products inside. Sometimes, the ship mark might include the information of order, receiver, etc.

The ship mark should be durable. If the ship mark is disappeared, it is difficult to identify the goods inside, we must open the package to see the label inside.

To avoid that situation, we have several different types of ship mark for your reference:

1. write the ship mark on the plastic bag or carton by permanent marker. this is the normal type for fishing net.

2. print the ship mark on the plastic bag or carton directly.
