Between the 22–27 October the project Sea slugs of Southern Norway carried on fieldwork in Vestfold. The county was together with Telemark still not sampled by our project, and even if the season was not the best for sea slugs, we have putted together a small party of three elements (Cessa Rauch, Anders Schouw and Tine Kvamme) which in collaboration with members of the Larvik Dykkeklubb and Sandefjord Dykkeklubb embraced the challenge of collecting sea slugs. Overall, after four days of fieldwork 21 species were sampled. Beside the fieldwork we had some outreaching activities and presented our work to the local community of divers, nature enthusiasts, and high school students.

We would like to thank theLarvik Dykkeklubb and Sandefjord Dykkeklubb for their interest, enthusiasm and help during our time in Vestfold.
