Abstract-Molecular genetic and morphological analysis of eelpouts of the genus Zoarces was carried out. Based on the mitochondrial DNA sequence variation, haplotypes of notched-fin eelpout, Z. elogatus, more closely related Fedorov eelpout, Z. fedorovi, and common eelpout, Z. viviparus, as well as of Andriyashev eelpout, Z. andriashevi, were grouped in one macrocluster. Haplotypes of American eelpout, Z. americanus, and blotched eelpout, Z. gillii, clustered separately from other species. The…

Variation and distribution of the eelpout species of the genus Zoarces (Pisces: Zoarcidae) of the sea of okhotsk
Genetic heterogeneity of Z. elongatus and the existence of a considerably diverged form probably deserving of species status was discovered, and new data point to a wider distribution of these species, from Western Kamchatka to the Shantar Islands.
Relationships and position of wrymouths of the family cryptacanthodidae in the system of the suborder Zoarcoidei (Pisces, Perciformes)
The opinion of Makushok on a phylogenetically distinct position of wrymouths in relation to snake blennies and related families is not supported and the anatomical features of skull structure support the data of molecular genetics.
On the record of Fedorov’s eelpout (Zoarces fedorovi, Zoarcidae), off western Kamchatka
The most vivid feature of coloration is the presence on the dorsal fin in Fedorov’s eelpout of inclineddark stripes with upper ends shifted anteriorly and alarge oval spot in the anterior part.
The relationships of Stichaeus nozawae (Jordan et Snyder, 1902) and Stichaeus grigorievi (Herzenstein, 1890) (Pisces: Stichaeidae) inferred from the data of genetic and karyological analyses and ultrastructural study of spermatozoa
The lack of variations in DNA and the chromosome set that are suitable for species differentiation, between Nozawa's and Grigorev’s pricklebacks is an evidence for the evolutionary adolescence of these species.

Abstract The analysis of variation among 203 nucleotide sequences of Co-1 gene (DNA-barcode) for 45 species, 31 genera and 7 families of the order Perciformes from the Far Eastern seas of Russia has


Nucleotide sequence variation of the mitochondrial COI gene in several eelpout species of the genus Zoarces (Zoarcidae, Pisces)
The mitochondrial COI gene was for the first time sequenced in eelpout species of the genus Zoarces from the Taui Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk: notched-fin Z. elongatus Kner, 1868 and the new sympatric
Zoarces fedorovi sp. nova (Perciformes: Zoarcidae)—A new species of eelpout from the Taui Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk
The description of a new species of the genus Zoarces, Z. fedorovi, widespread in the Taui Bay of the Sea of Okhotsk in freshened sites of coastal waters and near-mouth sections of rivers is provided, which differs from the latter and other Pacific species of eelpouts by a considerably smaller number of rays in unpaired and pectoral fins.
Relationships and divergence of some taxa of the subfamily Lycodinae (Zoarcidae, Pisces) based on molecular-genetic and morphological data
The problem of determination of the time of divergence of the studied zoarcid-like fish using the concept of “molecular clock” and its calibration according to paleontological and paleogeographic data is discussed.
