Storage and maintenance of common fishing gear


Fishing gear is widely used in fishery production, and its proper use and maintenance are of great significance to reduce costs, improve economic benefits and extend service life. To do a good job in the storage of fishing gear, we should first understand the physical and chemical properties of all kinds of fishing gear. For example, some production units put ethylene fiber and nylon mesh in the open for a long time, resulting in a decline in the strength of the network cable, reduce the use of fishing gear, often cause greater economic losses. So fishing gear storage and maintenance should pay attention to the following points:

(1) Before storage, clean the dirt, such as mud, greasy fish and other attachments on the fishing gear with fresh water, then dry, and remove floating, sinking and other accessories, and store separately. Before storage, the hook should be washed, sharpened, and coated with anti-rust oil, and then stored in a dry place.

(2) The storage place should keep the air circulation, without direct sunlight. For a small number of fishing gear and small size, can be tied to hang on the beam. For the fishing gear with large quantity and volume, it should be stored in the warehouse with high foundation and good ventilation conditions.

(3) Check frequently during storage. When the weather is fine and the air is dry, open the doors and Windows of the warehouse to make the air circulate. In the case of rain or high temperature, the warehouse doors and Windows should be strictly closed, do not open at will. Rainy season or summer season to pay more attention to the warehouse, because the net and rope made of plant fiber are easy to mold, once clear, should be immediately displayed in the sun to dry, if necessary can be appropriate spray fungicide. Warehouse also pay attention to insecticide, rodent and other work.

(4) Although synthetic fibers have good corrosion resistance than plant fibers, some synthetic fibers, such as acrylic fiber, nylon, etc., will also produce mold points under the condition of high temperature and high humidity for a long time, and the material strength will also be affected. Therefore, these fishing gear made of synthetic fiber should also pay attention to ventilation and drying. Most synthetic fibers lack good anti - light properties, do not make fishing gear made of such materials in the sun for a long time. Some synthetic fiber mesh should not be over-folded and bent, so as not to affect the strength of the network cable, reduce the service life.

(5) During the operation or the temporary end of the operation, the fishing gear should be washed and the debris removed, which is not only closely related to the fishing effect, but also important to the protection of fishing gear. If you do not remove the debris attached to the mesh, to be operated, the mesh will be torn due to uneven force.
