The marine environment and its rich biodiversity face numerous threats, including climate change, rising seawater temperatures, acidification and pollution. These challenges can have serious consequences for ecosystem services and the delicate balance of marine life. In recent decades, several marine observational strategies have been developed to monitor biodiversity. One particularly promising approach is the use of nucleic acid-based tools such as DNA barcoding, metabarcoding and environmental DNA analysis (eDNA). These tools have significant implications in several areas, including biodiversity monitoring, taxonomy, population genetics, seafood authenticity and food safety. This presentation will highlight key findings from case studies and provide an overview of the state of the art in the application of nucleic acid-based tools for marine biodiversity monitoring and seafood authenticity. Continued advancements in nucleic acid-based techniques will play a pivotal role in the sustainable management and conservation of marine environments and seafood resources.
