Researchers could soon bring their DNA labs to the field

    Description

    Currently, border officials have to judge whether any of the fish look sick, and therefore carry harmful diseases that could devastate local aquatic life, or if the goldfish might actually be invasive pests.

    But soon, thanks to tools being developed at the University of Canberra by the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions, officials only need a sample of water in the bag to detect diseases or discover if the fish aren't what they seem to be.
