PREFERRED TERM
SDN:B07::NDT015Multiple nets stratified horizontal tow  
DEFINITION
  • Two or more opened nets are on the wire at the same time. The ship is standing or moving ahead slowly. The nets are always open. Wire is paid out slowly and the nets attached while paying wire out. When the proper amount of wire has been paid out, the vessel is brought to towing speed and the nets fish horizontally in stratified layers. At the completion of the tow, the ship is stopped and the nets are recovered (Miller, 1961). Examples of nets that can be deployed that way include the Clarke Bumpus net, Leavitt net, the Miller High Speed Sampler non-opening/closing (Wiebe and Benfield 2003, Plates 6, 8 and 14).
