Using quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and occupancy models to estimate atypical Aeromonas hydrophila (aAh) prevalence in catfish

Investigation of atypical _Aeromonas hydrophila_ prevalence at the organ-, individual-, and pond-level. Swabs were taken from the gills and lower intestines of channel catfish and analyzed using qPCR to detect bacterial DNA. Results from qPCR were used to inform occupancy models to investigate prevalence and non-perfect detection.
