AP6 Plus Aquapurse | 8, 16MM
The Aquapurse is a six-sided oyster basket from INTERMAS and features one piece moulding – it simply folds and clips together so no other assembly is needed. The basket measures 72 x 25 CM.
It will accommodate a mesh spat bag as required.
Suitable for intertidal suspension, and flotation on longline and subtidal suspension.
Flat oysters grow particularly successfully in the AP6 Basket on long lines.
200 AP6 baskets fit on a pallet.
The producers of the AP6 suggest the following figures as a guide for usage:
- 8mm mesh bag will hold between 100-200 oysters
- 16mm mesh bag will hold approximately 60 oysters
- 8 baskets will fit comfortably on a standard 3x1M trestle – on a run of 100M of trestles they estimate 192 baskets can be suspended
- 6 baskets will fit on a similar size longline footprint, increasing to 180 baskets on a 100M run
