The BIONESS (Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Net Environmental Sampling
System) is a series of 9 nets that are opened and closed in sequence. BIONESS
tows are done obliquely (diagonally) through the water at given depths. A CTD
unit is attached to the frame of the BIONESS and allows in situ display of
conductivity, temperature, depth, and % light transmission within the water. We
use our BIONESS in combination with a scientific echo sounder to strategically
sample locations of high biomass within the water column.
