Abstract In this study, we cloned and sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome of Macropodus ocellatus. The genome is a circular molecule of 16,501 bp in length and consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes and 2 main non-coding regions (the control region and the origin of the light strand replication). The gene composition and order of which were similar to most other vertebrates. All protein-coding genes are initiated with ATG except for COX 1, which begin with GTG instead. However, the termination codons of 13 protein-coding genes are varied with TAA, TA, T or AGG. This mitogenome sequenc data would contribute to better understanding species identification, evolutionary relationships and population genetics of the Macropodus.
