Duluth Nets Experimental Gill Nets

Experimental or multi-panel gill nets are used to “gill” fish of different sizes and species. These nets are used primarily for research purposes and prove to be effective for sampling. Constructed using multiple panels of monofilament or multifilament gill netting in a single net. Panels are hand-sewn together with twine going from the top line to the bottom line. The gill nets are tied to a top rope or float line and a bottom rope or a lead line with side ropes weaved at both ends of the nets. These nets should be checked multiple times a day as they can cause mortality to the fish if left too long.
