Most of our work has involved sampling juveniles of fishes and crustaceans
in our Louisiana coastal marshes.  Our techniques have caught far more
numbers of fishes than you intend.  Nevertheless, some may be of interest to
you.  I suggest you check the Free Reprints listed on my web site , especially numbers 26, 36, and 56. I'll
be happy to send you paper copies of them or any others you want.

Subject: Small fish sampling methods

Dear Fish-SCI

I am a relatively new PhD student looking at the ecology and evolution 
of the three-spine stickleback in Ireland. I am currently 
planning/assessing my methodology for sampling and I was wondering if 
anyone could suggest some references?

I've found several good papers on comparisons of fish sampling methods 
but a lot of these concentrate on larger fish. If anyone could point me 
in the direction  of older or more obscure references dealing with small 
fish or with sticklebacks specifically that I might have missed, I would 
be very grateful indeed!

I should be clear that I am keen that my current planned sampling of 
rivers, lakes, estuarine and coastal marine habitats requires relatively 
small numbers of individuals (30-40). Regardless, I would like my 
samples to be as representative possible and I am keen to find out just 
how representative the current accepted methods for stickleback sampling 
  (pond-netting and minnow traps) are.

Many thanks
