Can the presence of specific fish species be confirmed through the eFish eDNA assay?

Our current eFish eDNA assay tests for the presence of a group of 12 fish species: Sockeye salmon, Pink salmon, Chum salmon, Arctic Grayling, Cutthroat trout, Rainbow trout, Chinook salmon, Coho salmon, Atlantic Salmon, Dolly Varden, Round Whitefish, and Slimy Sculpin. 

It does not identify a specific species. The test can be reported as “detected” of any one of these species or as a “not detected” result.
