Our smallest plankton nets designed to be used by hand.
Hand-held plankton net
These are our smallest plankton nets. They are designed to be used by hand, allowing you to catch plankton in the simplest way. The nets are conical and available in any size and micron mesh.
Their upper part, made of sturdy canvas, houses a stainless steel hoop that provides the necessary strength. This canvas includes a three-point bridle that allows the net to be attached to the main line. The body of the net is made of Nytal or Nitex mesh.
Plankton net bucket CP3
The cod end of the net is made of sturdy canvas, and designed to fit our CP3-50 or CP3-75 plankton net buckets (not included).

For vertical sampling, we have a weight that can be added to the plankton net buckets. This weight helps the net sink and facilitates vertical sampling.
