Shrimp trawls

A leading shrimp trawl manufacturer in the North Atlantic

Vónin has been making shrimp gear since the 1970s and is today the leading shrimp trawl manufacturer in the North Atlantic. The shrimp trawls have been in constant development through the years and are in widespread use today.

Shrimp trawls from Vónin are used in as diverse fishing grounds as the Barents Sea, off eastern Russia, off the east and west coasts of Greenland, in the Flemish Cap, off Newfoundland and Labrador and elsewhere off Canada.

The shrimp trawls are used by the small inshore trawlers and all the way up to the big factory trawlers. The trawls can be used for both single and multi-rig trawling.

Advantages with Fortis

The Fortis netting has been developed with a combination of outstanding strength and stiffness to provide opportunities for scaling down twine sizes in trawl gears. Using Fortis netting gives you the options of sticking with the same trawl dimensions but with reduced drag – or increasing the trawl’s size without affecting the overall water resistance.

Documented sea trials to compare trawl gears have demonstrated that Fortis netting results in a better flow of water through the gear, and our customers who have switched to this netting are all reporting better catch rates with Fortis gear.


Vónin shrimp and bottom trawls are based on designs to have very good bottom contact and superb waterflow.


Vónin has always taken pride in its netloft skills. This is the craftsmanship that even in this age of automation can’t be replaced


Alongside its traditional skills, Vónin’s experience is that using quality materials also pays off in the long term.
