Citizen Science ProcessingView Instructable »
Hey, a trawl is usually a a large wide-mouthed fishing net dragged by a vessel along the bottom or in the midwater of the sea or a lake. We are redesigning it to skim the surface of the water for plastics!
Thank you! We are testing the water for plastic. We design DIY trawls for citizen scientists to make and use in their nearby marine environments thereby reducing the accumulation of plastics through active community engagement.
Hey! We kept the trawl in the water for about 15 minutes. You can find more details on our blog : http://www.testingourwaters.net/blog/ We are also in the process of updating out trawl finds on our website!

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. Our aim is to skim our waters for plastic pollution and to study our findings further. We are in the process of designing more DIY trawls that are affordable so as to encourage more people to trawl. This is our first mockup and we are definitely looking forward to improve it.
