19.770 - Epibenthic sledge

The epibenthic sledge is a rigid, high-performance system for sampling small stones, benthic and benthopelagic faunas. The sledge consists of a rectangular frame with two rails. When towed along the seabed, its weight scrapes into the benthos, collecting any organisms on the surface or in the first centimetres of sediment. The sledge can be used at any depth. During the tow, the huge fin will stabilize the sledge.
