Non-invasive monitoring by means of eDNA of pelagic fish in the North Sea and elasmobranchs on the Saba bank (KB-24-002-038)

Project: EZproject

Description

Recent developments allow sustainable monitoring of marine fish via analyses of environmental DNA (eDNA) in seawater. The aim of this project is to test this application by taking water samples from a board a vessel samples during an ocean trip. NICO-cruise (National Initiative Changing Oceans by NIOZ) provides a unique opportunity for using eDNA in Dutch waters to determine the community composition of marine bony fish and elasmobranchs (sharks and rays)in the North Sea and on the Saba bank.
