30 L of seawater were collected along 2 km transects and filtered using 0.20-µM filtration capsules. Environmental DNA was extracted and amplified by PCR with the fish-specific primer pair teleo targeting a 70 bp fragment at the end of the mitochondrial DNA 12S rRNA gene. PCR reactions were carried out in 12 replicates per sample and unique tags were given to each sample. A paired-end sequencing (2x125 bp) was carried out on a MiSeq (Illumina, San Diego, CA, USA).
