These nets are rigged by us to the same high standard as our Seine Nets. They have CN4 Floats and 3oz Leads at every 18″ and are ideal for removing weed growth.
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,
