The Bongo Plankton Net is comprised of a pair of plankton nets mounted side-by-side on a marine grade stainless steel frame. The 300mm diameter nets are held apart using a 350mm stainless steel rod and by utilising different mesh sizes this net can collect two sizes of plankton in the same trawl. Each net is 2.48m long and has a cod end diameter of 110m with one net of mesh size 53μm and the second with mesh size 250μm. It comes supplied with a Quick Release Bag filter constructed from the same mesh as the net.
The net is towed using five 620mm stainless steel cables that come together in a coupling ring for the attachment of your own tow rope or cable. The recommended towing speed is 2 - 4 knots and we strongly recommend the use of a Depressor Vane to stabilise the net during towing.
All of our plankton nets are manufactured onsite at our workshop in Devon so if you have a specific size of net or bespoke modification in mind, please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss your requirements.
