Micaela Hellström from AquaBiota was granted a short-term grant (Short Term Scientific Mission – STSM) from EU’s COST DNAqua-Net fond (CA15219). She spent the month of July at the University of Hull, Great Britain, as a visiting scientist in Dr. Bernd Hänfling’s laboratory. The grant was intended to streamline and validate eDNA analyses of fish on a large scale for fish inventories. Collaborators from NatureMetrics, Great Britain, and the research institute Environment and Forest, Belgium, also participated in the project.
