DETERMINING THE SPECIES OF FISH SAMPLES

The IDENTIFICA fish ID service will identify the fish species in your sample.

Identification of fishery products can be relatively easy if the organisms are intact. However, the identification can be a difficult task when the products have certain forms of presentation and/or processing. DNA barcoding approaches can be used to identify the species present in a sample. The European Union recommends the use of genetic tests to improve compliance with the rules of the Common Fisheries Policy. Detection of food frauds requires genetic testing.
