These Guidelines for the Study of the Epibenthos of Subtidal Environments document a range of sampling gears and procedures for epibenthos studies that meet a variety of needs. The importance of adopting consistent sampling and analytical practices is highlighted. Emphasis is placed on ship‐based techniques for surveys of coastal and offshore shelf environments, but diver‐assisted surveys are also considered.
