Manta Net Sampler

The Manta Net a new design capable of continuous flow collection of organisms and flotsam at the sea surface, is described and compared to the Neuston Net. The Manta Net stays reliably at the surface during the entire sample period

The MANTA Net design and name are derived from the surface-feeding Manta-Ray because of its paired, anterior extensions flanking the mouth that lends well to capturing organisms at the ocean surface.

The frame is supported at the ocean surface by a pair of aquaplanes projecting at right angles. The net is towed by a wire with one short bridle and one long bridle to angle the net from the ship. The rigid frame construction and buoyant aquaplanes maintain a continuous rectangular net opening at the surface with a maximum depth.

The collecting bottle has 5 windows covered by a stainless steel filter and the mesh corresponds to the size of the main net. Furthermore, the bottle has a small eye, in which you can fasten a small buoyancy to keep the bottle close to the water’s surface.
