SDN:B07::NDT011Single net or net pair oblique stepped horizontal tow  
DEFINITION
  • Single net or net pair towed continuously in a stepped horizontal fashion. The sample is collected while the gear is towed from depth to the surface in a succession of horizontal and oblique steps; details related to sampling time at specific depths and the duration of the tow should be included in the cruise metadata. Examples of gears that can be deployed that way include ring nets, Bongo nets, Tucker trawls, IKMTs, or other non-opening closing nets (Wiebe and Benfield 2003, Plates 2 and 3)
