Surber net

Smaller and more portable than standard surbers yet just as tough, this net is also called a riffle sampler or run sampler. Simply position the Mini-Surber on the stream bottom, then stir up the bottom within the unit so that any animal life will float up and drift into the net.

Fyke nets

Fyke nets catch fish alive and keep them unharmed making these nets essential for most fish raising or census taking operations.
These nets work well for harvesting fish and shrimp.
