Plummet Nets

Heron (1982) introduced the scientific community to a new type of down-fishing zooplankton sampler that was clever enough to catch krill. A series of studies have successfully employed the design since, and hopefully the Bangarang Project will provide a successful addition to that list. This Backgrounder assembles all published information I could find on the plummet design into one document.

This and other Backgrounders are available on the Reports page.
