This European Standard specifies a method for the sampling of fish in lakes, using benthic multi-mesh gillnets and gives recommendations on sampling of fish with pelagic multi-mesh gillnets. The method provides a whole-lake estimate for species occurrence, quantitative relative fish abundance, biomass expressed as Catch Per Unit Effort (CPUE) and size structure of fish assemblages in temperate lakes. It also provides estimates that are comparable over time within a lake and between lakes.
This European Standard specifies routines for sampling, data handling and reporting, and provides information on applications and further treatment of data. It also provides guidance for the sampling of fish for age and growth analyses. According to the principles of this standard other lentic water bodies can be sampled.
