Evaluation of the Gulf sampling method : Report conducted in the VELMU Inventory Programme for the Underwater Marine Environment

Along the Finnish coast, the Gulf Olympia paired ichthyoplankton samplers have been widely used for collecting early life stages of pelagic fish, e.g. within the Finnish Inventory Programme for Marine Underwater Environment (VELMU), aiming to localize larval habitats. The aim of this study was to examine how prevailing conditions during the sampling period impact the sampling efficiency and the data obtained with the Gulf Olympia samplers.
