Aquaculture

With the dynamic growth of the mussel industry, innovative growing and harvesting techniques, coupled with state of the art processing procedures, Donaghys have ensured their mussel rope development is supplying international Mussel farmers with the technologically advanced products to meet their increasing demands. Donaghys Xmas Tree ropes are manufactured in distinct styles, straight or looped, weighted and in aqua or black.

All ropes are treated with a UV stabiliser to help protect the rope from weathering. A range of high strength, high abrasion resistant ropes have been developed to meet the rigors of the marine industry including Aquasteel, a rope with the performance advantages of steel, without compromising the handling characteristics. These new innovative products deliver to the industry a reliability you can trust.
