Abstract

The three croakers (Nibea coibor, Protonibea diacanthus and Argyrosomus amoyensis, Perciformes, Sciaenidae) are important commercial species inhabiting the Eastern Indian Ocean and Western Pacific. Molecular data employed in previous research on phylogenetic reconstruction have not been adequate and complete, and systematic and comprehensive phylogenetic relationships for these fish are unresolved. We sequenced the complete mitochondrial genomes of the three croakers using next-generation sequencing for the first time. We analyzed the composition and phylogenies between 19 species in the family Sciaenidae using the mitochondrial protein coding sequences of 204 species in the Series Eupercaria. We present the characterization of the complete mitochondrial genome sequences of the three croakers. Gene arrangement and distribution of the three croakers are canonically identical and consistent with other vertebrates. We found that the family Sciaenidae is an independent branch that is isolated from the order Perciformes and does not belong to any extant classification. Therefore, this family is expected to belong to a new classification at the order level and needs further analysis. The evolution of Sciaenidae has lagged far behind the Perciformes differentiation. This study presents a novel insight into the phylogenetics of the family Sciaenidae from the order Perciformes and facilitates additional studies on the evolution and phylogeny of Series Eupercaria.
