One of the best quantitative samplers for benthic invertebrates. Designed for shallow flowing rivers of moderate current with fine, loose sediments, its main advantages are portability and ease of use. The filtering area is large enough to insert your entire hand in order to remove specimens. Two pivoting solid stainless-steel frames and lockable brace latches hold the frames at right angles to each other. Net is of Nitex® bolt cloth with taffeta wings for durability. Replacement nets are easier to install on new corrosion-resistant stainless steel frames.
The Surber sampler with sleeve kit is designed for small streams and light samples. The sample collects into the attached removable Dolphin bucket, leaving no need to rinse the entire net.
