  1. 1. GENETIC DIVERGENCE STUDIES IN SEAHORSEBASED ON MITOCHONDRIAL DNA & MICROSATELLITE SEQUENCING Karan Veer Singh
  2. 2. OBJECTIVES: 1. Morphological & molecular identification of Seahorse fishspecies from India using traditional and molecular approaches.(16srDNA, Cyt b and Co I gene segments).2. Development of microsatellite markers in Seahorse species. a. Identification of microsatellite loci in H. kuda, H. trimaculatus,through cross species amplification. b. Sequencing of identified microsatellite loci to confirm repeats. 3. Population genetics of seahorse- Genotyping of individuals fromnatural populations withi. identified microsatellite markers and ii. mitochondrial DNAmarkers. NBFGR

  5. 5. Out Comes & Out Put :Clear species identification will make it easier:- • To develop marking systems to distinguish aquacultured seahorses from wild-caught specimens. • To modify fishing practices appropriately, • Design protective marine reserves, & To assess captive breeding potential for seahorses. • Genetic studies provide valuable information for baseline management decision. • Identifying remnant population and determining the extent to which native genetic pools are being changed by hybridization. • The population structure of threatened or endangered species. NBFGR
  6. 6. Present StatusGovernment of India has banned the collection (fishing) of seahorses sinceJuly 2001,Under Schedule – I of the Wildlife Protection Act 1972.Seahorse characteristics of low fecundity, limited mobility,structured mating patterns and site fidelity, make them particularlyvulnerable to heavy fishing pressure.

  37. 37. Summary & conclusion‫ ٭‬Microsatellite genotyping and mitochondrial DNA sequence information have provided a clear evidence for the existence of strong population differentiation.‫ ٭‬Haplotype Diversity very high as compared to the Nucleotide diversity in both species.‫ ٭‬Distinct population of East & West coast / Reduced or No Gene flow.‫ ٭‬Along the west coast, two distinct populations of H. kuda indicate the absence of gene flow between Kerala and Goa localities.‫ ٭‬Lack of Sub-structuring of H.trimaculatus between Kerala & TN. Range expansion from India To Java.‫ ٭‬High Genetic diversity in South East India (PB & GOM) may be the result of long-term stable environment condition.‫ ٭‬Coastal cold-water upwelling events characteristics of western India (Genetic Bottleneck) can be reason for the presence of comparatively few Haplotypes.‫ ٭‬However, significant number of common/shared haplotypes and the non-significant FST value between two east coast populations of both the species suggests that some degree of gene flow exists between populations within these areas.‫ ٭‬All the classes of markers revealed high level of genetic variation in populations of this species as evinced from values of heterozygosity, Fst and genetic distance. The study points out the need for stock-specific, propagation assisted rehabilitation programme for this species. NBFGR
