The basic of farming with SmartUnits or SmartCages
The farming technology is all based on SmartUnits or SmartCage with polyethylene pipes for carrying the biomass and moorings to absorb active forces and necessary flexibility. The SmartUnit is a sustainable replacement of the traditional longlines / long lines.
The SmartUnits or SmartCages performs excellent in sea and assure gentle motions in waves.
It is an aesthetically good solution, as the pipes are less visible than when using traditional buoys.
