The sharpsnout seabream Diplodus puntazzo Walbaum, 1792 is a target species of small-scale fishery activities and is cage-cultured for human consumption. Nonetheless, genetic information on this species is limited. We here first sequence its complete mitochondrial genome. The sequence is composed of 16,638 base pairs, accounting for 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and 2 non-coding regions (D-loop and L-origin). The overall nucleotide composition is: 27.4% A, 28.9% C, 26.9% T, and 16.8% G. Maximum likelihood analyses placed D. puntazzo close to Acanthopagrus and some Pagellus species.

Abstract

The sharpsnout seabream Diplodus puntazzo Walbaum, 1792 is a target species of small-scale fishery activities and is cage-cultured for human consumption. Nonetheless, genetic information on this species is limited. We here first sequence its complete mitochondrial genome. The sequence is composed of 16,638 base pairs, accounting for 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and 2 non-coding regions (D-loop and L-origin). The overall nucleotide composition is: 27.4% A, 28.9% C, 26.9% T, and 16.8% G. Maximum likelihood analyses placed D. puntazzo close to Acanthopagrus and some Pagellus species.
