Tidepool Tim and his handmade marine plankton tow net.

Tidepool Tim says, "This plankton sample is extraordinary!  It's common to have jellies, larval fish, copepods, worms, among thousands of copepods, crab zoea, and various veligers present, floating freely in the Gulf of Maine, at the mercy of oceanic currents.  A great scavenger hunt for microscopy students!  Let us customize the experience with seasonal tows, daytime or nighttime tows or topwater vs. benthic tows.  Contact us to discuss your lab activities or projects!    This plankton is freshly sieved from Maine waters.  Our custom made plankton net is made from the rim of a 55 gallon drum. When we tow this behind our boat, you know you will be seeing some serious planktonic specimens!"
