Different species of cladocerans, copepods, ostracods, fairy shrimp, midges, etc. have population peaks under different conditions, so there's a good chance you'll harvest something at any time of year.

If you tell me the mesh size I'll research it with you. I'm curious if it's more something like cheese cloth or nylon or 1/8" fiberglass or whatnot.

Plankton nets are made of rather fine material (picture a baby brine shrimp net). I've tried making one with paint strainer mesh, which is a bit coarser than plankton net material, and it did not work nearly as well, even when doubled up. Perhaps a trip to a fabric store might yield something more suitable.
