The New Bedford Working Waterfront Festival Sept 28 and 29- a unique opportunity to see an underwater simulation of how fishing gear works.

GEARNET will be partnering with The Center for Sustainable Aquatic Resources (CSAR) at the Marine Institute at Memorial University, Newfoundland to display a model flume tank at the Festival. The 750 gallon flume tank circulates water through a complex system of propellers, pumps and pipes to mimic the flowing ocean. Local net designer Tor Bendiksen a member of GEARNET’s Technical Committee and a significant partner in GEARNET, has designed model nets for use in the tank and will be available to talk about trawl fishing and answer related questions.
