The Molecular Characterization and Phylogenetic Reconstruction of Penaeid Shrimps from Mumbai Coast, Maharashtra


Author(s): Rupinder A Kaur, Gursimran Kaur Uppal and Tejal M Sawant

Abstract: The commercial Penaeid shrimp Fenneropenaeus indicus H. Milne-Edwards, 1837, Parapenaeopsis stylifera H. Milne-Edwards, 1837 and Solenocera crassicornis H. Milne-Edwards, 1837 were collected to estimate phylogenetic relationships and taxonomic status amongst other members of Family Penaeidae from Fishing Area 51. The present results suggest that Fenneropenaeus indicus, Parapenaeopsis stylifera and Solenocera crassicornis from different locations or countries from Fishing Area 51 belong to the same genetic population. This study revealed the identification of shrimp species based on the molecular approach using mitochondrial COI gene marker. Sequence of Penaeid shrimps, Fenneropenaeus indicus (MK488093), Parapenaeopsis stylifera (MH724294) and Solenocera crassicornis (MK511444) from Mumbai, western coast of Maharashtra were published in NCBI. This result will be useful for obtaining the intraspecific and interspecific genetic distance, genetic biodiversity of the population structure and for the conservation and management of these resources. P. stylifera and S. crassicornis shows close relation with each other and F. indicus form different clade.
