The presented methodological notes address the question of sampling accuracy when sample-based data collection operations are performed under operational constraints - a frequent concern of fishery administrations with limited budgets and human resources. The paper focuses on an 'a priori' determination of safe sample size using classical statistical methods appropriately adjusted to respond to specific target populations. The concepts and methods included in the paper apply equally to both marine and inland capture fisheries and are presented in a manner that is generic enough to make them adaptable in commonly used data collection systems.
