Description
The MOCNESS is a computer controlled net system used to collect
plankton samples from specific depths in the water column. As
the net system is towed through the water, individual nets can
be opened within target depth 'bins.' This ability to collect
samples from discrete depths allows researchers to determine the
vertical distribution of the organisms they are studying.
