Abstract:

A suction pipe for sampling mid-water and bottom organisms in the sea is described. The device can be used from a stationary ship for taking samples at water depths greater than 100 m. If used at the bottom from 25 kg to 50 kg of sediment can be collected in ten minutes, suggesting that the equipment is suitable for quantitative research.
