Recovering fishnets collected by South American fishing communities
Bureo, a U.S. company based in California, engages in an operation of recovering used fishnets. Its recovery station in Chile, South America, gives instructions on how to recover fishnets and remove impurities from them.
As the company donates part of its profits to NGOs and NPOs in the region, it is also instrumental in supporting sustainable growth of local communities as well.
Traceability of recovered fishnets
Recovered fishnets are managed in an integrated fashion using QR codes, covering the entire stages of operation from receipt records to cleaning, drying, cutting and shipping.
This ensures traceability down to details like the location of recovery, who recovered the nets, the weight of nets recovered, and quality control.

Diverse demand can be met by the lineup of source yarn choices, varying from 20 d to 160 d.
