German term or phrase: Hamennetz, Habitatbindung
Kann mir jemand erklaeren, was ein Hamennetz ist, oder gar eine Uebersetzung vorschlagen?
Kontext: fangen von nachtaktiven Flussfischen mit "feinmaschigen Hamennetzen".

Ausserdem: gibt es einen englischen Ausdruck fuer "Habitatbindung"?

Besten Dank

Sorry, I don't have any 100% English transaltions, but a Hamennetz is a fishing net shaped like a bag, it can be big or small, the small ones look like a butterfly net with a long handle. Neither sack net nor bag net are in TNODoE. Habitatbinding could be simply habitat bond meaning that a creature doesn't wand to leave the location it's used to.
