Research equipment

  • A small-meshed research bottom trawl for catching fry, with an insert of mesh size 6 mm, an inlet area at the connection of square and wings (headline=headrope bosom) =9.80 m², trawl inlet area =7.54 m². Speed of trawling 2.5–2.8 knots. The boat is applied for fry catches in the Szczecin Lagoon and the Pomeranian Bay. Bottom set nets of NORDIC type can also be deployed by STYNKA II.
  • Portable hydrological probe (Ruttner and Patalas samplers) and bottom sediments samplers (Ekman’s, van Veen’s and HAPS scoops (=diggers), as well a tube scoop).
  • Sets for plankton sampling (Bongo net with a diameter of 61 cm and Baby–Bongo), pumps for zooplankton catches, neuston net for microplastics determination.
  • Portable devices for measurements of the basic hydrological parameters in a water column (STDs, pH-meters).
