Simple plankton net
Designed to be dragged by a boat.
It can be used horizontally, vertically and obliquely.
Made of AISI 316 stainless steel, includes a triple-point bridle with anti-twist shackle for attaching it to the main line, a clamp for securing the net and a rod for attaching a flow meter. Available in various diameters.
The top and cod end of the plankton net are made of sturdy canvas. The cylindrical-conical body of the net is made of Nytal mesh. The cod end is designed to fit our CP3 plankton collectors.
A weight or depressor is needed to sink the net correctly. Includes various anchor points to vary the angle of attack. Available in different sizes.

To sample a particular interval of the water column, it is possible to add choke rings to the net together with a messenger closure system on the main line.
