Market: Experimental & Scientific Research
Product type: Gillnet
Applications: River Sampling, Lac Sampling, Fish Inventory
Lead time: Made upon order
The main purpose of the EXP 6 Gill Net is to conduct an accurate sampling of a watercourse with a net consisting of 6 panels with different
sizes in order to make a complete inventory of species in an environment according to the standards established by the MFFP
  • The experimental gillnet is used to survey fish populations (age or size classes, maturity stages) in fresh or salt water.
  • They are made of
    sections of different sizes.
  • Any combination is possible, but standards (length, depth,
    , filament type, color) exist for various applications and jurisdictions.
  • These 6 ft. deep nets have a floating headline (top) and a lead line (bottom).
  • The sections are arranged in order from largest to smallest
  • Different models can be manufactured to suit different needs.
