Tear-Drop Beam Sled

Stainless Steel with PVC Runners, available with 1M and 2M Rigid Beam Bars

Designed to tow along the seafloor to capture fish and bottom invertebrates. The runners feature heavy-duty eyes for towing, tickler chain and net attachment. Companion nets are available in mesh opening of 1/8” and ¼” heavy netting and custom lengths.

Purse SeinE

A purse seine is a large wall of netting deployed around an entire area or school of fish.

The seine has floats along the top line with a lead line threaded through rings along the bottom. Once a school of fish is located, a skiff encircles the school with the net. The lead line is then pulled in, “pursing” the net closed on the bottom, preventing fish from escaping by swimming downward.

Maximum length Purse Seine available from Sea-Gear is 100 ft x 6 feet tall with centrally located cod end sock
