Abstract

Climate change and direct effect of human activities imply the necessity to establish the biological pollution nature and magnitude; set objectives; consider the full range of alternatives; determine risk; assess benefits versus risks. Research helps shedding new light on the ecological and economic consequences of climate change. Recent technological advances, in fact, have driven rapid development of DNA-based methods designed to facilitate detection and monitoring of invasive species in aquatic environments. These tools promise to improve on traditional monitoring approaches by enhancing detection sensitivity, reducing analytical turnaround times and monitoring costs, and increasing specificity of target identifications. There has been an upsurge in scientific research aimed at guiding management of sustainable use of water resources limited by climate change too. To address these aspects, our laboratories pay special attention to the “genes” for the fish and fisheries importance in the global market. In particular, we report sequence and PCR-RFLP (Polymerase Chain Reaction – Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism) analysis carried out to identify different geographical origin fish species and their various commercial relevance commonly used in many manufactured fish products as biotechnological applications useful for a rational and sustainable use of water resources
