We rig our Heavy Duty Weed Nets by hand, here at Collins Nets.
Our weed nets are made in a comparable way to our Seine nets, with 22 mm knotless mesh fully rigged with 3oz barrel leads at 18″ and CN4 floats at 18″, therefore making this net ideal for removing weed growth & surface algae.
We use 1.3mm braided twine to rig the Nylon knotless netting to 10 mm low stretch quality rope with floats and leads.
To efficiently remove common algae and weeds, simply pull the net over the surface of the water.
We add a sweep and handle to all 4 corners of our weed nets. Subsequently, this makes them easy to attach to a bridle or can be used by hand. These sweeps make longer nets that may get heavy as they are being maneuvered during use, much easier to use.
For further guidance on using a seine net see page 10 of this IFCA Fish Survey Best Practice guide. Fish-survey-best-practice-guidance.pdf.
The main components of a Heavy Duty Weed net are,
25 mtrs x 1 mtr deep, 50 mtrs x 1 mtr deep
A seine net is fishing net that hangs vertically in the water with its bottom edge held down by weights and its top edge buoyed by floats.
It is operated by hand using the two ropes fixed to its ends for hauling and herding the fish.
The type of seine nets we make are also known as drag nets or beach seines. They are commonly used all over the world in marine waters, lakes or large rivers.
