Efficacy of metabarcoding for identification of fish eggs evaluated with mock communities

Elena Duke & Ron Burton
There is urgent need for effective and efficient monitoring of marine fish populations. Monitoring eggs and larval fish may be more informative that traditional fish surveys since ichthyoplankton surveys reveal the reproductive activities of fish populations, which directly impact their population trajectories. Ichthyoplankton surveys have turned to molecular methods (DNA barcoding & metabarcoding) for identification of eggs and larval fish due to challenges of morphological identification. In this study we examine the effectiveness of using...
