Description / Abstract:

This practice covers the procedures for obtaining qualitative bottom samples of macroinvertebrates inhabiting sand, cobble, rubble stone, and similar substrates.

The sampler should not be used in critical quantitative work that is to be compared with results of other areas and is recommended as a reconnaisance sampler only.

This device is used primarily in marine waters and deep lakes.

For the advantages and limitations of selecting grab sampling devices, see Guide D 4387.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazards, see Section 5.
