Chris Doley, of NOAA, hauls an experimental crab pot from the water at a sampling site. Blue crab pot samples were taken at shallow-water sites around Poplar Island using pots with mesh sizes about three times smaller than used in commercial crab pots. The mesh in the pots used for sampling was about 1/2" of fine mesh netting.

retrieving a gillnet from the water, the mesh is 1&1/2". The catch is primarily white perch. The gillnets are experimental multi-mesh gillnets. All nets are connected to a string of nets containing different size mesh between 1&1/2", 2&1/2", and 3&1/2" mesh. Gillnets are made with a lead line that sinks to the bottom and a float line that keeps the net just below the surface of the water.

Dave Meyer conducts a throw trap sample of high marsh tide pools on the remnant islands of the Poplar Island archipelago. The collection will help to determine the types and number of small fish and invertebrates that use the tide pools. The collection was looking to determine which species exist in the tide pools where there is no threat from predation.
