NORWAY: New test for DNA tracing of escaped farmed salmon

NORWAY: New test for DNA tracing of escaped farmed salmon | Coastal Restoration | Scoop.it

Scientists at Nofima have developed a new and efficient DNA test to trace escaped farmed salmon, in which they can link the DNA profile of the escaped fish to the fish farm from which it escaped.

 

Testing of the system on a pilot scale demonstrates virtually 100 % accuracy, and simulation of data that has so far been done on an industrial scale is promising.

 

This system means all the fish in the sea cage can relax; they do not need to be tested in order to be matched with escaped fish because their parents were tested before the production fish were hatched.

PIRatE Lab's insight:

Traceability comes to wild fish.

Overfishing in one of world's most productive fishing regions, new study suggests: Study finds over capacity in Gulf of California's small-scale fisheries

Overfishing in one of world's most productive fishing regions, new study suggests: Study finds over capacity in Gulf of California's small-scale fisheries | Coastal Restoration | Scoop.it
Scientists used images from satellites and flyovers to count the number of small boats, or pangas, to find that fishing in Gulf of California, which separates Baja California and mainland Mexico, is over capacity. The analysis suggests that future investment in the region's fisheries may not be economically or ecologically viable.
