The Continuous, Underway Fish Egg Sampler, CUFES, is used to collect pelagic eggs of fish, and ancillary data, from ca. 3-m depth from a moving research vessel. These samples and data are, in turn, used to investigate spawning habitat and estimate spawning biomass. Pelagic fish eggs are often aggregated in time and space. Continuous sampling from an ship moving at full speed is an effective means to assess aggregated distributions. CUFES was designed with this intent.
