This net is for use with the drift net frame. The major problem encountered with nets fitted with bottles or rubber funnels is that the flow of water causes organisms to be deposited on the net itself rather than in the bottle or funnel.
To overcome this problem you can use an open-ended Drift Net Bag with filter. Organisms caught by the net are deposited on a mesh filter screen of the same material as the net itself. This can be unscrewed in the field and either washed off into a container, to enable the screen to be re-used immediately, or dropped into a bottle for future examination.
The Drift Net Bag is made from polyester mesh and is available in either 1mm, 500µm or 250µm mesh. The bag is 0.65m long and tapers to an open end where the included filter is attached, The filter will be of the same mesh size as the net.
Please note, this is the Drift Net Bag and Filter only - you will also need:
