Floating nets follow the water level according to the tides. They are held on the ground by heavy steel chains. Poles about 6 meters high and requiring a guying are added to the facilities. These nets are not suitable for all locations. They are to be avoided where seaweed, sand and mud can cover them. They become too heavy to float.
