Next generation sequencing aids gemfish fishery

R sol mtDNA.jpgThe genome of a gemfish has been sequenced at MFL.

The fish sequenced was landed by FV Territory Pearl on 3rd November 2013 off the South Australian coast and was provided by Raptis P/L from Adelaide.

The information in the genome will help to analyse the spatial extent of the fishery in the Great Australian Bight. Read more about this project here.
