8 Panel Experimental Gill Net

Scientific Research
Product type:
Fresh Water Sampling, Fish Inventory
Lead time:
16-30 Days
The main objective of the EXP 8 Gill Net is to conduct an accurate sampling of a watercourse with a net consisting of 8 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 mesh sections of different sizes.
  • Any combination is possible, but standards (length, depth, mesh, 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 mesh.
  • Different models can be manufactured to suit different needs.
