A net for the capture of stream drift organisms



A net for the capture of stream drift organisms



Ecology 9(3): 339-342



Nets are described for collecting quantitatively and qualitatively the terrestrial insects which fall into the water of streams. This class of available fish food is termed "drift food." The complete apparatus consisted of a drift net and stop net. The former collected the available drift organisms by acting as a sieve and straining the water. The latter was used to "stop" drift organisms at any desired distance upstream from the drift net so that quantitative collections could be made based upon unit area lengths of stream.
