Elkhorn Slough Elasmobranch Project
Sampling Protocol

  • Sampling takes place on pre-determined days that evenly represent each of our four tide classes.
  • Water depth is recorded throughout each sample.
  • Temperature is recorded at the beginning and end of each sample.
  • Gill-net set time remains constant ( unless the animal's safety is at risk ).
  • Identification tags are administered in order to avoid error in capture data and to establish the minimum population size for this study.
