A 3" square net made with fine nylon mesh, suitable for catching live brine shrimp and small fish with delicate fins. Handle is nylon-coated. Although the manufacturer describes this net as a "Brine Shrimp Net," it is more suitable for sub-adult and adult brine shrimp, small fish, larvae and zooplankton larger than 500 microns. Its soft, supple material minimizes the risk of mechanical damage and stress to live animals. For capturing, retaining and/or rinsing newly hatched brine shrimp and zooplankton under 500 microns (but larger than 100 microns), we recommend the Sieve or 150 Mesh Bag.
