It depends on the quality of the material. In general nylon is the most.
Valuable fraction and we pay for this kind of material.
The price depends of transport cost.
If you want Nofir to collect your fish farming nets, it is important that the nets are washed and disinfected.
Other kind of fishing equipment we can take as they are.
In most cases Nofir covers the cost of transport from our customers from any part of European coast and arange all of paper work: Annex VII, environmental receipts:
We give full dismantling report to our customers if needed. In fact, our clients don’t have to do anything, just contact Nofir.
Each year around 640 000 tons of fishing equipment is discarded or lost at sea. This waste has an enormous negative impact on mammals, birds and fish. By collecting discarded fishing equipment Nofir prevents discarded nets from going to the ocean. Most of the material we collect is used for recycling – Nets ends up as new products such as carpets, baskets, or clothes.
What’s more we are part of Eufir, an EU-supported project to collect equipment all over EU. Nofir’s goal within this project was to decrease:
oil consumption by 57 600 t
CO2 emission by 57 600 t
plastic waste to sea by 12 600 t
plastic waste to landfill by 16 200 t
The goal of Nofir’s activity is to give new life to useless, old discarded equipment. Abandoned fishing nets are a big environmental problem. By recycling it we not only prevent it from going to the seas, but we create new, valuable products. Nofir is literally bringing value to marine waste.
In practice Nofir collects discarded equipment from clients and transport it to the factory in Lithuania or Turkey where material is dismantled. Then, it is mostly given for the recycling.
The general office of Nofir is in Norway but we have factory in Lithuania and in Turkey where we transport discarded equipment.
There is also small office in Poland. Nofir collects discarded nets from all over the Europe and Turkey.
You can contact one of our worker (https://nofir.no/#/team) or fill the discard form on our website. The best way is to send pictures by mail and shortly discrible material that you want to get rid off.

Enough to fill a track or container which in practice means 15-24 tons. As we have a lot of clients in Europe it is possible
to take only few tonnes of nets on the occasion when we will organize transport for other customer in the same country.
