PREFERRED TERM
SDN:B07::NDT013Single net stratified oblique tow  
DEFINITION
  • An opening and closing mechanism is present and a single depth interval is sampled by a single net or a net pair. The net is sent down closed, opened by messenger and fished upward at a certain rate. At a predetermined depth another messenger is sent down to close the nets. A variation on this is to open the net by messenger and close by flow meter readings. Examples of gears that can be deployed that way include Clarke-Bumpus nets, Leavitt nets, other opening/closing nets (Wiebe and Benfield 2003, Plates 6 and 8)
