Summary

Environmental DNA detection results from samples collected using autonomous water sampling robots and manual approaches. Samples were collected in the Upper Yellowstone River (Montana) and Upper Snake River (Idaho/Wyoming) in 2018 and 2019. Samples were tested for the DNA of the following species: the waterborne protozoa Naegleria spp., the fish pathogen Tetracapsuloides bryosalmonae, Scomber japonicas (mackerel fish), kokanee salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) and dreissenid mussel (Dreissena spp.).

Purpose

Data were collected to compare eDNA collected via robot, at high frequency, with traditional manual collections to determine if a.) both methods capture similar information about target presence/absence, and b.) higher frequency sampling provides more or better actionable information.
