Environmental DNA (eDNA) testing is a scientific tool available to augment, or replace conventional ecological survey methods for the detection of species of management interest. It is particularly advantageous for detecting aquatic species that are of low population density and hard to otherwise observe, such as species at risk or early detection of invasive species.
