Welcome to NHBS, home of EFE & GB Nets

Almost every aquatic ecologist and many entomologists will have used or owned an EFE & GB Nets net or frame at some point in their working life; the trademark orange flashing around the mouth of each net evokes memories for many and is a clear mark of quality and durability. Founded in 1974, the company is now the leading manufacturer of fieldwork equipment, nets and frames in the UK and is renowned for the robust practicality of its range of handmade professional survey equipment.

In May 2016 EFE & GB Nets started a new phase in its 42-year existence by teaming up with NHBS. The workshop has moved 50 miles east from Lostwithiel in Cornwall to Totnes in Devon to bigger and better facilities and customer services will be handled by the experienced team at NHBS. Alongside NHBS, EFE & GB Nets will continue as a specialist manufacturer of marine, freshwater and entomological nets of various types, sizes and strengths all carefully designed to meet the demands of researchers, consultants, public authorities and educators in the environment sector.
