In this study, the experiments of a 1:30-scale model of a flexible, circular net cage with mooring system are conducted in the circulating flume. For geometry and motion measurements, a nonintrusive stereo imaging method is employed, which uses 3 CCD camera systems to take the 2-dimensional photos and then transform them to 3-dimensional visional sketches. Experiment results show a highly mutual dependency between the tension force and the deformation of a flexible net structure. Further investigated are the evolution change of 3-D deformation and the motion of the net cage.
