Tucker Trawl sizes are typically specified by their "effective mouth area". A one meter (1 m) Tucker Trawl will present a one square meter mouth opening to the water column while under tow, at a nominal 45 deg actual mouth pitch angle. The onboard pitch sensor corrects swept volume for any actual deviation from the nominal angle.
Standard sizes are 1 m, 2 m and 2.5 m effective mouth areas. The smaller size is suitable for deployment from small vessels, while the large nets require a vessel of significant size.
