Abstract

Karyotypic data from Australian native freshwater fishes are scarce, having been described from relatively few species. Golden perch (Macquaria ambigua) and Murray cod (Maccullochella peelii) are two large-bodied freshwater fish species native to Australia with significant indigenous, cultural,...

Abstract

The European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.) is a marine fish of key economic and cultural importance in Europe. It is now more an aquaculture than a fisheries species (>96% of the production in 2016), although modern rearing techniques date back only from the late 1980s. It also has high...

Abstract

The evolutionary divergence of the immune defense functions in bighead carp (A. nobilis) and silver carp (H. molitrix) is still not understood at the molecular level. Here, we obtained 48,821,754 and 55,054,480 clean reads from spleen tissue libraries prepared for bighead carp and silver carp using ...

Abstract

Transmission is a fundamental component of pathogen fitness. A better understanding of pathogen transmission can greatly improve disease management. In particular, controlled studies of multiple rounds of natural transmission (i.e. serial passage) can provide powerful epidemiological and...

Abstract

Background: Gene and genome duplication play important roles in the evolution of gene function. Compared to individual duplicated genes, gene clusters attract particular attention considering their frequent associations with innovation and adaptation. Here, we report for the first time the...

Abstract

The cardiac outflow tract of chondrichthyans is composed of the myocardial conus arteriosus, equipped with valves at its luminal side, and the bulbus arteriosus devoid of myocardium. Knowledge of the histomorphology of the conal valves is scarce despite their importance in preventing blood backflow ...

Abstract

Morphological identification of tilapia species is complicated by extensive intraspecific variation of morphological characters used for classical identification. To address this obstacle, use of molecular techniques as additional tools for identification of these cichlids is recommended. Further,...

Abstract

Distant hybridization occurs widely in fishes and is a useful strategy to produce different ploidy offsprings. In this study, we obtained androgenetic blunt snout bream (2n=48, ADBSB), triploid hybrids (3n=124, 3nJB) and tetraploid hybrids (4n=148, 4nJB) from the hybridization of two species from...

Abstract

Spring viremia of carp (SVC) is listed as a notifiable viral disease by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). In 2016, the first official SVC outbreak was detected in the city of Gyeongsan, Korea. The present study reports the first complete genome analysis of SVC virus (SVCV,...

Abstract

Current rates of biodiversity loss pose an unprecedented challenge to the conservation community, particularly with amphibians and freshwater fish as the most threatened vertebrates. An increasing number of environmental challenges, including habitat loss, pathogens, and global warming, demand a...
