2012 Sea Nettle Barrier Project Final Report

In the summer of 2012 the BBP continued to set two barrier nets at local bathing beaches to test their effectiveness in excluding sea nettle medusa from interacting with bathers. This year included a reduced mesh size compared to 2011. The results of the net’s effectiveness across mesh sizes, as well as it’s interactions with local fish fauna, are described.
