Each time you use this net you will feel like your experiencing a new adventure when you observe the variety of small animals that inhabit the plankton zones in the oceans and waterways of our world.

Some of the animals you will encounter are fry and larvae (newborns) of seahorses, Clams, Oysters, copepods of all types.

All kinds of fish fry, squid fry, and a multitude of other animals that inhabit the planktonic zones in the ocean as part of their life cycle.

PVC Cod end (10cm X 15cm)
