It is concluded that cox1 sequencing, or ‘barcoding’, can be used to identify fish species.
A comparison of genetic diversity levels in marine, freshwater, and anadromous fishes
Electrophoretic data were analysed from 49 species of freshwater fish, 57 species of marine fish, and seven anadromous species to show reduced values of Hs in freshwater species are likely to reflect reduced effective subpopulation sizes relative to marine species.
The campaign to DNA barcode all fishes, FISH-BOL.
Analysis is targeting a 648 base pair region of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) gene, targeting several specimens with divergent barcode sequences confirmed by integrative taxonomic analysis as new species.
Protein Heterozygosity, Protein Structure, and Taxonomic Differentiation
Soon after the introduction of electrophoretic techniques to study the genetic structure of natural populations of animals and plants came the realization that enzymes differed in their levels of…

COI DNA barcoding is increasingly recognized as a significant new tool for the recognition and identification of animal species and, at all hierarchical taxonomic levels, fish show greater mean COI divergence than birds.
DNA barcoding Australasian chondrichthyans: results and potential uses in conservation
It is concluded that cox1 barcoding can be used to identify shark and ray species with a very high degree of accuracy and also highlights some taxonomic issues that need to be investigated further.

In addition to barcode‐based species identification system, phylogenetic relationships among the species have also been attempted and the neighbour‐joining tree revealed distinct clusters in concurrence with the taxonomic status of the species.
Restocking and stock enhancement of marine invertebrate fisheries.
Protein variation in the plaice, Pleuronectes platessa L.
Thirty-nine enzyme loci and seven non-enzymic protein loci have been screened for electrophoretically detectable variation in a population of Pleuronectes platessa, a marine flatfish, and the distributions of allele frequencies and single locus heterozygosities are given.
DNA barcoding discriminates echinoderm species
Results suggest that DNA barcoding is likely to be an effective, accurate and useful method of species diagnosis for all five classes of Echinodermata.
