Scale Model Purse Seine Test Tank
The video below shows what is going on under the water during a standard set with a purse seine net. Using the tank allows engineers and fisherman to see how the net responds to a certain set of forces. The tank can simulate currents at different levels in the water column. Being able to visualize how the net responds under water is crucial to developing and improving net designs.
Purse Seine nets are used in many different fisheries around
