Rope Mussel Floats

Rope-mussel-floats-header

JFC superior high performance mussel floats are designed and manufactured for the most demanding conditions. Ideal for inshore and offshore locations, they are proven in the most exposed conditions of the Atlantic Ocean, and can significantly improve the profitability of mussel farming enterprises.

The JFC float has been specifically designed so that they can withstand the pressures of high waves and sit steadily on the water, even when loaded with a full crop of mussels. The patented stability fin of JFC mussel floats ensures that our floats have a low profile in the water, causing limited vertical motion and reduced stress on the mussels. Consequently this “reduced stress” on the mussels means that they can concentrate on growing as opposed to expending their energy trying to remain attached to the rope during turbulent conditions.

In addition the fin design ensures the mussel holding lines do not brush “up and down” and so preventing the crop from falling back into the sea. The end result means that mussels grown using JFC mussel floats, grow larger, have a higher meat quality, and are much less susceptible to losses. All of these factors culminate in significantly increased yields over a shorter time period for the mussel farmer.

Advantages of JFC Mussel Floats:

  • Highly durable and reliable rotationally moulded UV stabilised polyethylene
  • Increased yields and better crop performance maximising profits
  • Low maintenance
  • Cost effective
  • Substantially increased spat collection
  • Patented fin design
  • Ideal for both inshore and offshore locations
  • Colour –  Marine Grey (Aesthetically appealing to surrounding environment)

Single Line Mussel Floats 

JFC single line mussel floats can be used for both surface or submerged lines. A combination of floats can be used to either increase or reduce the level of floatation required. Eg.  As seed grows and becomes heavier the larger MF250 floats can be added to achieve the optimum floatation required. 

Benefits:

  • Ideal for collecting spat both inshore and offshore
  • Can be used for extra buoyancy on long lines
  • A combination of floats can be used to either increase or reduce the level of floatation required
  • Recyclable and low visual impact
  • Strong and durable
  • Can be used to depths of 30m+
