These are Three of the Most Common Ways to Hang Nets:

  1. Over 1/2 - 250 to 300 yards of netting per 100 yards net.

  2. 1/2 Basis - 200 yards of netting per 100 yards net.

  3. 1/3 Basis - 150 yards of netting per 100 yards net.

 

Sports nets and fish seines are usually hung on 1/3 Basis while most gill (fishing) nets are hung on 1/2 Basis or over 1/2.

The same mesh depth netting will yield less depth when hung on 1/3 Basis. The charts shown below will show you how deep a net you will get if you hang on 1/2 Basis or 1/3 Basis.

HOW TO READ CHART: Example: to hang 6 ft. deep, net of 2" square mesh - Use 27 mesh deep webbing.

The following formula will tell you how long your ties should be to hang on 1/3 Basis, 1/2 Basis or over 1/2.

  1. Multiply the stretched mesh size times the number of mesh you wish to put on each tie. This will give you the total distance these mesh will stretch.
  2. If you wish to hang on 1/3 Basis, mulitply this by .66 to get your tie length..
  3. If you wish to hang on 1/2 Basis, multiply this by .50 to get your tie length.
  4. If you wish to hang on over 1/2, multiply this by .33 to get your tie length.

Example:
3" sq. mesh = 6" str. mesh
8 mesh per tie

6" x 8" = 48" is the total distance the 8 mesh will reach.
48 x .66 = 32" ties for 1/3 Basis
48 x .50 = 24" ties for 1/2 Basis
48 x .33 = 16" ties for over 1/2
