2.6.2: USFWS Capacity for eDNA Sampling for Early Detection

2.6.4: USFWS Capacity for eDNA Sample Processing

Mike Weimer

slide2

Introduction and Objectives

2.6.2: Will provide USFWS Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office facilities the initial resources to conduct integrated long‐term early detection activities with a particular focus on locations in southern Lake Michigan, western Lake Erie and other invasional hotspots.

2.6.4: Will provide USFWS La Crosse Fish Health Center with initial resources to develop adequate staffing, equipment, and laboratory space to begin processing eDNA samples.

Current Knowledge

  • FY 2011 Action:
  • Task 2.6.2:
  • Testing and refinement of capabilities for monitoring and sampling eDNA outside the CAWS
  • Development of an eDNA sampling protocol that will be incorporated into long term monitoring strategy in collaboration with participating agencies.
slide4

Current Knowledge (continued)

  • FY 2011 Action:
  • Task 2.6.4:
  • Development of the capacity for the systematic analysis of eDNA samples - initially from the CAWS and then other locations around the Great Lakes
  • Assist collaborating agencies in validation of eDNA calibration and sample processing as facility comes on line decreasing turn‐around time for results
  • Asian carp highest priority for sample processing followed by other high risk AIS
slide5

Future Plans 2.6.2

  • Fully develop the capacity for implementing an eDNA sampling program at USFWS Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Conservation Offices. Q4 - 2012
  • Support the establishment of a biologically based statistically tenable eDNA sampling protocol for use basin wide. Q4 - 2011
  • Implement an eDNA draft sampling protocol at other areas of concern with focus on southern Lake Michigan, western Lake Erie and other potential hotspots. Q4 - 2012
slide6

Future Plans 2.6.4

  • Meet with USACOE ERDC personnel to establish timeline and feasibility of eDNA sampling technology transfer. Q2 - 2011 and ongoing
  • Develop guidelines and process for eDNA technology transfer. Q2/Q3 - 2011 and ongoing
  • Establish new lease agreement with GSA allowing for remodel and expansion of the La Crosse FHC facility. Q3 - 2011.
slide7

Future Plans 2.6.4 (continued)

  • Remodel and expand La Crosse FHC facility, purchase needed equipment and supplies. Q3 - 2012
  • Hire appropriate personnel. Q4 - 2011.
slide8

Technological or Other Hurdles

  • 2.6.2:
  • Weather and access to sampling sites
  • Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QAQC) process for sample contamination
  • Calibration of eDNA technology is needed
  • 2.6.4:
  • Calibration results/lack of results may influence timeline for transfer to USFWS
  • Weather may influence construction timelines
slide9

Data Gaps

  • Calibration work will be key to quantify what an eDNA detection specifically means
  • Marker development may not cover all target species
  • La Crosse initial sample processing capacity will be 50 samples per week which is less than is currently being processed
