Lift nets

2. Bintur (Crab Lift net)
This type of lift net is intended for catching crabs in shallow waters and is often baited to lure crabs (see Figure 12). The gear area dimension is about 457 mm x 457 mm in size, for catching river crabs. It is made up usually of two bamboo stick crisscrossed to form the frame with the four ends holding the four corners of the square net with mesh size of about 51 to 76 mm made of PE net. The baits used are usually small chunks of brackish water catfish, rays or sharks that are suspended by a string in the middle of the gear.
