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
