An effect of the yarn surface nature upon knot slip resistance, the latter serving as a measure of fishing nets′ knot stability, was studied. The yarn surface character was described by the friction coefficient of the yarn, determined at a specially designed measuring unit. The results were treated statistically. The nature of yarn surface was found to affect considerably the knot slip resistance.
