The net is pretty solid and has been used several times in a marine environment without any problems. The only issue is that the pot at the end fills up with sea water and keeps the plankton concentration quite low, making it quite hard to find the plankton in the pot. As such, we will revert to using a much more expensive plankton net which features a filter screw cap at the end, allowing the seawater to pass through but giving a dense build up of plankton. The mesh is also quite coarse, allowing much plankton to pass through.
