MMCP Collaboration (MMCP) is a project supported by the Joint State Governments and the Murray-Darling Basin Authority to generate and adopt freshwater ecological knowledge through collaboration, to maintain research capability and contribute supporting science to underpin the Basin-Wide Watering Strategy.

The objectives of this theme within the MMCP is to help the Murray-Darling Basin Officials Committee (BOC) address specific questions as they arise. These question will have relevance to the on-going management of Basin Assets.

This synthesis paper is a response to a question poised by BOC, and examines the current suitability and feasibility of environmental DNA (eDNA) based survey methods in supporting biological monitoring applications in the Murray-Darling Basin (MDB).
