Our all new modular Habitat Mats, provide the easiest, tested and proven way to keep a large grouping of fish habitat units and products forever together and heavily weighted to the lake floor. The Eco-friendly, reclaimed and all safe plastic Fishiding Habitat Mats, allow you to assemble and slide hundreds of pounds of habitat groupings into the water directly off docks, boats, barges and pontoons without the need of heavy equipment. Incorporated grated feet, rails and runners combine to offer unlimited weight disbursement in virtually any underwater terrain, never sliding, tipping or moving once installed.
Be sure that your fish habitat products stay where you put them on the lake floor, with absolute certainty. Fishiding Habitat Mats allow you to easily attach any of our artificial habitat models in countless variety and positioning together in a group. Any type of artificial and natural habitat materials can be permanently attached and installed as a cluster together, without the need of additional tools, supplies or additional weighting. Super heavy zip ties and welded stainless steel rings ensure that all the habitat products stay intact forever.
Each patent pending Habitat Mat incorporates substantial weight, wide footprint and low center of mass, keeping the attached units and materials together and down on the lake floor for good. By increasing the habitat complexity, overall site density and by increasing the footprint, countless variations of module arrangements can be installed easily on most any bottom sediment type.
The ease of delivery, staging and deployment all combine to allow the simple installation of large habitat modules weighing hundreds of pounds, with ease and no special equipment. Our standard size Mat comes 40"x 48"x 8" and weighs 235 pounds empty. All Habitat Mats slide easily on flat, smooth surfaces like plastic, wood, metal or cement. Slots for forklift or pallet jacks are available on all four sides for easy transport to lake front, boat, barge or dock.
Multiple Mats can be linked together to form continuous lines of habitat in any shape or configuration, stacked on edge or bundled. Habitat Mats can be made to order with additional, or even less weight than the standard 235# standard size. Specific material types, sizes and densities are easy to achieve with this new concept in modular habitat design and installation. Customized Habitat Mats can be ordered in an array of sizes up to 6'x 8' and larger when needed. Easy to slide off a boat or construction of modules for dry lake bed installation in two and three dimensions, stories and directions.
Plastic habitat models, wood, brush and rock can all be attached and held fast on the lake floor in a grouping that won't move once deployed. Fishiding Habitat Mats are built super strong and sturdy, able to hold thousands of pounds each.
Just like working and playing with underwater building blocks, our structurally sound Habitat Mats can be connected and/or installed on their tops, bottoms, any sides, edges or even corners. Three dimensional shapes with unlimited configuration options, create a permanent, heavily weighted framework for habitat product anchoring. Typically attached together with standard heavy duty zip ties, any long lasting rope, cable or banding you may select will work as well. Fabrication for customization is easy with the durable HDPE Habitat Mat Framework. Grouping kits of three to six Habitat Mats or more, are each weighted specifically for the selected framework shape to keep weight mass centered low. Full surround, six sided fry protection with escape ports, full of life growing surface area, assembled and deployed in just minutes.
The Mat underside spreads out the weight evenly, keeping the grouping from settling, leaning or shifting apart. Open and perfectly spaced grating with unlimited fastening points on all sides, allows easy and adaptable attachment of any habitat types or materials
The included 250#zip ties in both plastic and stainless steel, along with welded stainless steel rings, hold any Fishiding habitat models that you select, upon/onto and/or inside the Mat for good.
Along with our standard 235# Blank Modular Fish Habitat MatTM, we are currently offering three poured and completed Modular Habitat Mat models in the same size and weight, with our patented Fishiding materials already incorporated directly into the Mat, just unwrap and slide in. You can even fasten additional habitat units and materials to the same Habitat Mat, creating even more fishy protection, with the included zip ties and welded stainless steel rings. All Mats drop easily through the water column, allowing water to pass through the hundreds of slots as it drops perfectly vertical to it's final resting spot.
Because each project is different and location and shipping costs are related to what is ultimately ordered, please contact us to create the perfect affordable solution to your fishery needs. Products can be stacked and combined in countless configurations for shipping, drastically reducing shipping cost. Bulk discounts available where applicable, please call or email for more details.
Modular Fish Habitat Mats without embedded habitat material:
One Blank Modular Fish Habitat Mat is the habitat modular material anchoring platform to attach both Fishiding habitat and any other type of habitat products upon, to hold them all together in a heavily weighted group. This 235 pound all HDPE mat measuring 40 inches by 48 inches and 8" thick, supports up to five thousand pounds of habitat materials, spreading the weight evenly upon the lake floor. By massively reducing any potential settling into the lake floor sediment, there is no overall habitat vertical height loss. No more missing cover from current, theft of storms. Fasten any loose habitat products and materials both natural and artificial, mixing them altogether to form a refuge to call home. Hundreds of openings allow unlimited design options with fastening points throughout all sides of mat. Stack two, three four or more together, creating true habitat complexes for the fish. Easy to customize to accommodate your habitat layout designs and specific fish needs. $145.00 each.
Three Sided Modular Fish Habitat Mat Complex is a perfect way to combine weight, height, fastening options and three dimensional shapes to your habitat plans. A-Frames, T-Shapes, Zip-Zag Lines and more can be fastened together and slid into the water as one large habitat complex, or built easily on a dry lake bed. Materials and models can be fastened both vertically and horizontally, inside on top or around this combined habitat framework. Order with all three Mats weighing 235# each, or just one, with the others having any combination of weight incorporated for your needs. Low center of balance is achieved easily by keeping the center of mass at the bottom, ensuring stability once resting on the lake floor. Specifically weighted to work as a group in your selected configuration, all the needed zip ties are included to build the fish their next home. $400.00 each set of three. (shown with Bunker/Cradle attached, not included)
The OasisTM Six Sided Fish Habitat Cage system is just the beginning of our modular habitat complex construction. Building blocks of strength, providing safety that creates the ultimate modular habitat system for small fish protection and increased fish production. This structurally sound, well built and massive fish housing complex, can be stuffed full of intricate cover for the smallest of fry and forage to divide into private spaces, an Oasis from the danger outside the over 16 cubic feet of protected interior space.
The 500 pounds is spread across 13 square feet, creating this super low center of gravity which ensures this sanctuary of safety stays upright, in one spot and forever down where it was installed. The fully completed Oasis filled with anything you desire, can be slid off a dock, boat deck, pontoon or barge easily with two simple boards. Openings throughout the complex to average about 1.5" square, allowing the little guys in and keeping the big fish out, providing true protection and production of smaller fry and forage species of all types. Multiple fork slots around entire complex, allow small fish a place to escape, once too large to fit back through the smaller grating. The six separate Mats attach together with supplied heavy duty zip ties in minutes. Any combination of Mat configuration, weighting, layout or ideas are possible, just give us a call and we'll work with you, for your fish. $675 each set of six/500# (shown with models attached, not included)
