Fish are sensitive indicators of water and environmental quality and their assessment is an important part of water and fisheries management. However, conventional sampling methods like netting in lakes are inefficient, costly and can injure or kill fish. Graeme will discuss developments of a new approach involving the sequencing and identifying DNA released into water from skin, urine and faeces and the information it can provide on fish living in a lake.
The talk will be held in the Pyramid Room, Department of Geography, King’s Building, King’s College London, Strand WC2R 2LS (see map).
