Large scale eDNA monitoring of multiple aquatic pathogens as a tool to provide risk maps for wildlife diseases

Natalie Sieber, Alex King, Raphael Krieg, Armin Zenker, Christoph Vorburger & Hanna Hartikainen
Multiple parasites and pathogens cause disease in aquatic wildlife and in aquaculture species, generating a need for monitoring and management. Conventional disease monitoring methods involve laborious, costly and invasive capture and examination of host species, and require specialised expertise for every host and pathogen of interest. These restrictions could be alleviated by using pathogen detection techniques based on environmental DNA that provide simultaneous surveys of multiple aquatic pathogens across different host taxa. This would also...
