The following photographs show the results of spending 10 minutes trawling for Nurdles through small debris patches on the surface of the sea in Nim Shue Wan Bay, Lantau on 7 August 2012 using a Koi net deployed from a sampan (the mesh of the Koi net is small enough to catch Nurdles). No visible sea life was caught during this trawl.
