Coilia dussumieri (Valenciennes, 1848) commonly called as golden anchovy, constitutes a considerable fishery in the northern part of both the west and east coasts of India. Despite its clear-cut geographic isolation, the species is treated as a unit stock for fishery management purposes. We evaluated 32 microsatellite primer pairs from three closely related(More)
The golden anchovy, Coilia dussumieri, though possessing discontinuous distribution along northeast and northwest coasts of India, it is being managed as unit stock for fishery assessment purposes. By considering the need for stock specific management of the species, mitochondrial ATP synthase 6 and 8 (ATPase 6/8) genes were analyzed for delineating genetic(More)
Population genetic structure of the pelagic narrow-barred Spanish mackerel (Scomberomorus commerson) was examined in 10 populations from the Indo-West Pacific region, based on mitochondrial control region DNA. We examined genetic composition of 56 individuals of S. commerson from the Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal, and compared them with 40 individuals from(More)
Scomberomorus commerson is an economically important migratory fish distributed worldwide. The genetic stock structure of S. commerson distributed along the Indian waters was identified using mitochondrial ATPase 6 and 8 genes. A total of 842 bp sequence of ATPase 6/8 genes obtained in this study revealed 23 haplotypes with mean low nucleotide diversity and(More)
Groupers are important commercial fish in many parts of the world. Accurate identification is critical for effective conservation assessment and fisheries management. Genetic barcodes provide a simple and reproducible method for the identification of species even in the absence of taxonomic expertise. The generation of reference barcodes from properly(More)
Cyprinus carpio koi fin (CCKF) cell line was established and characterized from the caudal fin tissue of ornamental common carp, C. carpio koi. This cell line has been maintained in L-15 medium supplemented with 15% foetal bovine serum (FBS) and subcultured more than 52 times over a period of 24 mo. The CCKF cell line consisted of epithelial cells and was(More)
