Narcotising polychaetes

I have about 12 copies of the 1979 Smaldon and Lee reference in my 
room. If anyone  would like a copy let me know.  

Another effective method not  mentioned in the above reference is 
carbonated sea water. I use an ordinary soda siphon (the type used for 
making soda to go with your whisky), fill it with sea water, then squirt the 
carbonated water into a tray containing sea water and the polychaetes. 
The length of time to relax  depends on which group of polychaetes are 
involved and the amount of carbonated sea water.  

Afterwards the soda siphon is not much good for whisky and sodas but it 
is a small price to pay for an effective solution.
