Shark fishing in fin soup

  title={Shark fishing in fin soup},
  author={A Rus Hoelzel},
  journal={Conservation Genetics},
Shark DNA extracted from products used in trade(e.g. soup and dried fins) was amplified usingPCR. A strategy is described that permits theidentification of amplified material to species(for mtDNA Cytb and NADH2 loci) and thespecies-specific amplification of basking sharkDNA from mixed templates (for the Cytb locus). These methods will be useful for forensicapplications to govern trade in these heavilyexploited species.
