This International Standard provides guidelines on the quantitative collection and processing of subtidal soft-bottom macrofaunal samples in marine waters.This International Standard encompasses:a) development of the sampling programme;b) requirements for sampling equipment;c) sampling and sample treatment in the field;d) sorting and species identification;e) storage of collected and processed material.This International Standard does not specifically address the following, although some elements may be applicable: bioassay sub-sampling; deep water (>750 m) or offshore sampling; in situ faunal studies, e.g. recolonization assays; non-benthic organisms caught in the sampling device; estuarine sampling; intertidal sampling; meiofaunal sampling and analysis (see Reference ); sampling by dredge and sledge; self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (SCUBA) sampling; statistical design.Accuracy of position fixing is determined by the geographical area, equipment used and survey objective.
