Data from: The release rate of environmental DNA from juvenile and adult fish

Atsushi Maruyama, Keisuke Nakamura, Hiroki Yamanaka, Michio Kondoh & Toshifumi Minamoto
The environmental DNA (eDNA) technique is expected to become a powerful, non-invasive tool for estimating the distribution and biomass of organisms. This technique was recently shown to be applicable to aquatic vertebrates by collecting extraorganismal DNA floating in the water or absorbed onto suspended particles. However, basic information on eDNA release rate is lacking, despite it being essential for practical applications. In this series of experiments with bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus), we examined the effect...
