Hexcyl Pod

Surface gear system increases growth rate, taste and quality of farmed oysters

Description

Designed for smaller farms or to allow for easy boat access, Hoopers Island Oysters developed the Hexcyl Pod to give oyster growers a competitive advantage. Featuring three Hexcy baskets connected with two, GoDeep GD-11 floats, the Pod converts traditional long-line gear into flexible surface gear. The Pod is one-quarter the size of the HI-Flow system allowing it to be easily deployed, stocked and managed in open waters.
