The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission/ Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI/FWC) created a visually engaging story map to inform managers and stakeholders about the use of environmental DNA sampling in the MBON project.

eDNA is of special interest to the FWRI’s Harmful Algal Blooms (HAB) research program, as it is helping to improve the development of screening tools for specific toxic algae and their associated communities. This story map focuses on harmful algae and fisheries, and reviews the research team activities, goals and use of the genomics tools/methods developed by MBON, as part of monitoring and event response.
