These
are Three of the Most Common Ways to Hang Nets For Fishing
2/3 Basis
 300 yards of netting per 100 yards net.
1/2 Basis  200 yards of netting per 100 yards net.
1/3 Basis  150 yards of netting per 100 yards net.

Catahoula Manufacturing, Inc. sells wholesale only! Minimum order to
be set up as a distributor is $5,000.00. If you can not meet these requirements  contact us with your area of interest and we will put
you in touch with one of our distributors. 
For sports nets such as batting cages and backstops,
it is best if the mesh is close to the same height and length with ratio of
29.3%.
If possible
hanging ratio should be between 25% and 35%.
Seines are normally hung as close as
possible to 1/3 basis
which is a hanging ratio of 33.3%.
If possible hanging ratio should be between 20% and 40%.
Gilling
type nets are normally hung between 1/2
and 2/3 which is a hanging ratio of 50% to 66.7%. Generally more is better,
but over 70% will start to become too dark in the water.

HOW
TO READ CHART: Above

As the height and length of the mesh get further apart the square feet
per pound becomes less.

HOW
TO READ CHART: Use
the following formula to get other heights (widths)
Mesh Deep = Desired height times above mesh deep in chart divided by 10.
Example: If you
need 1 7/8" square mesh 15 feet deep at 29.3% ratio.
(This is where each mesh
is the same height in chart divided by 10
Mesh deep from above
chart for 10 feet is 45.
15' x 45 mesh deep is
675'
675 ÷ 10 is
67.5 mesh deep for 15 feet deep 


The following
formula will tell you how long your ties should be to hang on 29.3%, 1/3 Basis, 1/2
Basis or 2/3 Basis.
 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.
 If you wish to hang on
29.3% ratio, multiply this by 70.7% to get your tie length. Note: This
29.3% ratio makes your mesh the same height and length.
 If you wish to hang on 1/3 Basis, multiply
this by .667 to get your tie length. (33.3% ratio)
 If you wish to hang on 1/2 Basis, multiply
this by .50 to get your tie length. (50.0% ratio)
 If you wish to hang on 2/3
Basis, multiply
this by .333 to get your tie length. (66.7% ratio)
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 .293 = 14" ties for 29.3% ratio
48 x .667 = 32" ties for 1/3 Basis (33.3% ratio)
48 x .50 = 24" ties for 1/2 Basis (50.0% ratio)
48 x .33 = 16" ties for 2/3 Basis (66.7% ratio)
