Abstract: This report summarizes the most practical and cost-effective techniques developed from CERC-sponsored research and the literature for quantitatively sampling high-energy sand beach macroinvertebrates. The general habitat, the field crew's qualifications and duties, and the materials and equipment are described. A general approach to planning the fieldwork, timing the trips, and developing a sampling plan is given. Methods for taking, transferring, and preserving samples for laboratory analysis are described. Sample treatment, population analysis, cost and manpower requirements are discussed.
