Abstract

A method that extracts DNA from aquatic habitats has been used to explore fish population structure in City monitoring efforts. In such sampling, genetic material shed by organisms – environmental DNA (eDNA) – is collected by filtering streamflow, and analyzed for species-specific DNA arrangements using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) sequencing. BES has been using this passive method to sample reaches throughout its watersheds, often where and when conventional methods are not feasible. Here I will briefly present recent salmon, trout, and lamprey results, focusing on the Crystal Springs Creek reach of the Johnson Creek watershed.
