Veliger Net - curtailing the spread of invasive species
This 63 micron net is designed to collect veligers, the free-swimming larval form of mussels.
Keeping track of - and curtailing the spread of - veligers has just become easier. Because a large volume of water is needed to calculate the veliger density using microscopic methods in the lab, our net is extra long with a hefty 1000mL collection bucket. Its impeccable construction can withstand the constant decontamination involved with sampling these organisms.
Veliger Net includes:
• Plankton Net, 1:4 ratio (20” mouth, ~80” long), 63μm mesh
• 7-E50 Ring and Bridle, 20” (500mm)
• 48-D80 Dolphin™ Adaptor, 3.5”
• 47-F28 Dolphin™ Bucket, 1000mL, 61μm stainless steel mesh
• 47-F99 Guard Rails
