Many professional and volunteer monitoring programs throughout the United States use a rectangular style
kick-net. The reasons are simple; it is easy to use and versatile. The net shown here was designed by WV Save
Our Streams and built by BioQuip. It is available for sale in their product line. This net is sold in two
styles; a single pole and a knock-down that breaks apart for easier storage. BioQuip also sells two-pole
kick-nets with either coarse (1 mm openings) or a variety of fine mesh sizes. Note: A kick-net
is provided to certified volunteer moitoring groups as part of their biosurvey kit.
