Figure 17. Hyponeuston net for capturing life in the top 5 centimeters of the water column. This net was devised by Yuvenalii P. Zaitsev of the biological station at Odessa and meant to capture plankton from the very top of the water column. The top of the net was actually half out of the water when being towed while the bottom skimmed the surface. First made in 1959.
