How it works

The plankton net bucket is the container situated at the cod end of a plankton net where the planktonic organisms collected are deposited. It can be used together with all our plankton nets. It is available in various sizes and versions.



The methacrylate-reinforced base allows light to pass through, letting you preview the sample. The AISI 316 stainless steel window and its high-quality silicone gasket allow meshes to be exchanged easily (except CP3-50 collectors).
