HOW TO COLLECT PlankTOn
Submerge the entire Plankton Net with the attached specimen bottle into the water. Be sure to
hold on tightly to the handle. The net opening should be about a foot below the surface of the water. Use the handle to drag the Plankton Net, with the netting and the attached specimen bottle extended behind it, through the water for at least two minutes. The longer you drag the net in the water, the more plankton you will collect. For the best results, collect your specimen in calm water. Plankton swim away from crashing waves. To drag the net, you can walk forward or even stand still and turn in a circle.
