Hydrobiology has adopted environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling for a number of projects in recent years. We are currently undertaking eDNA sampling in Brazil using our purpose-made Smith-Root backpack. A few litres of water provide enough information to determine resident fish species via the latest trace DNA testing methods. This quick tool informs biomonitoring programs and is a great means of identifying species of conservation significance.
