Instrument: BINCKE net


The Benthic Ichthyofauna Net for Coral/Kelp Environments (BINCKE) is a rectangular net opened and closed by means of a rigid, hinged frame at one end and of variable size depending upon the size and behavior of targeted species. It is used for the collection of fishes from structurally complex environments (e.g., coral reefs, kelp forests.
