Our industry and our team

Who We Are

As the salmon industry developed during the 1980’s in Atlantic Canada, Clarence Blanchard saw an opportunity in net construction for salmon pens. To keep up with changes to the growing aquaculture industry, futureNETS moved from manufacturing nets for octagon wood cages to square steel cages and now large circular plastic cages, always paying attention to customers’ specifications and conditions.



Success has come from the company’s ability to develop products and services that get the maximum life and value out of each and every net.
futureNETS is dedicated to delivering custom nets on time, every time.

Our Mission

The mission of futureNETS is to supply the best products along with accompanying services that suit our customers’ needs.
