The very small Thomsea’s net has been designed for harbours, coastal or sheltered waters. In this case, it can towed by a small boat with a 5 HP engine, kayaks/canoes, paddle boards. Also two swimmers equipped with fins or a walker along a sand beach.
It can be also be used on small rivers and canals, attached bank to bank. The filtering socket is able to contain about 40 kg of debris at a density of 0.2. Even when it is full, it can be withdrawn from water by human strength.
