Hand Nets have a number of excellent features which make them
perfect for repeated use in tough environments.
1. The net bag is protected by the strong, marine grade aluminium
outer frame to minimise abrasion when kick sampling on
BUYER’S GUIDE CHOOSING A HAND NET
Our versatile hand nets come with the following options:
• Frame size: Student (200m), Professional (250mm), Large (300mm)
2. A range of mesh sizes are available, so you only collect
organisms of interest.
3. The net bags are secured within the outer frame by a removable
brass inner frame. This ensures that the bag is secure but also
enables you to remove the bag for sterilisation between sites.
• Handle material: Wood or Aluminium
4. The solid FSC ash or aluminium handles are comfortable to
use in cold and wet situations, provide buoyancy if the net is
dropped and are sturdy enough to be leant upon.
• Handle type: Single, Two-piece or Three-piece
• Mesh size: 250μm, 500μm, 1mm or 2mm
• Bag depth: Standard (0.3m) or Deep (0.5m)
