Increasingly accurate and affordable DNA sequencing technologies are having a major role in re-defining biodiversity assessment, especially in aquatic habitats. Taxonomic and functional attributes of marine communities can be effectively gleaned from fragments of biological material dispersed in the water column, via a process termed DNA metabarcoding, which is now being considered as a novel tool for ecosystem and environmental monitoring. Most recently, filter-feeding, scavenging and sessile invertebrates are being touted as potential ‘natural samplers’ of local DNA diversity, in the hope that they could improve and streamline environmental DNA sampling and concentration, as well as reduci
