Need for nutrition
Marine fisheries have grown strong in size and efficiency over the decades. Trawling constitutes an important part of this sector and provides high quality seafood. Through technological improvements (digitalisation in detection, automation in catch, and processing and improvement in storage and product quality preservation) and behavioural changes, the fishing sector can substantially decrease damage to aquatic ecosystems, reduce emissions and lower its fuel costs. It is our responsibility to fulfil these goals.
The most sustainable fishing vessel
The Damen Wet fish trawler is ideal for fishing with the flyshooting method. This is a special method which significantly reduces the requirement to drag the net through the water, allowing the use of a smaller engine.
Throughout the decades all sorts of technical developments were implemented in our trawlers. Building hundreds of these sophisticated trawlers – all slightly better than their predecessor – proves that we've evolved step by step.
Safe and sturdy
Fuel consumption is the major cost driver in the operation to fish (tropical) shrimps. The market demands a safe and sturdy vessel that is easy to maintain. Therefore, Damen Maaskant has developed such a vessel with focus on reducing fuel consumption and emissions as much as possible.
