Prestigious journal validates Asian carp research
Date:1/5/2011

ies had previously believed. Some carp eDNA was found in Calumet Harbor, a near-shore area of Lake Michigan itself, many miles beyond the electronic underwater barrier.

The announcement led to significant media attention and numerous public policy responses, including a multi-agency government effort in December of 2009 to apply rotenone, a common pesticide used to eradicate fish populations, to some sections of the Chicago-area waterway. In June 2010, when a live bighead carp was found in Chicago's Lake Calumet, concerns about Asian carp grew higher. Some observers and industry interest groups questioned the validity of eDNA and noted that the research had not been published by a peer-reviewed journal. The criticisms came despite the fact that the research had been examined thoroughly by a special U.S. Environmental Protection Agency peer-review published in February 2010.

"Getting our research published not only helps rebut those criticisms, but it also provides evidence that eDNA is more sensitive than traditional methods," said Christopher Jerde, the paper's lead author. "This is a big new breakthrough in species monitoring and control."

The paper, titled "'Sight-unseen' Detection of Rare Aquatic Species Using Environmental DNA," describes in full for the first time the depth and breadth of the eDNA process used by the Notre Dame and Nature Conservancy team.
