Abstract: Albinism has been widely reported for diverse group of vertebrates. However, scoliosis is a rare abnormality. In this work, the first record of partial albinism and scoliosis case in tadpole of the frog Odontophrynus occidentalis is being presented. The individual was captured in Quebrada de las

“…Over the years, the lack of management of estuarine fish stocks increased the catch rate of the Ariidae family, which caused a decline in the abundance of the main species (Araújo 1988;Reis 1986a;Reis 1986b). This overfishing could have lead to a reduction of the effective population size, favoring the inbreeding and the expression of the gene for albinism (Sanabria et al 2010). However, future studies on genetic variability of the marine catfishes in the region are needed to test this hypothesis.…”

“…Its mean landings are 1,964 tons per year in the state of Campeche and Tabasco (CONAPESCA 2012) 1 .The lack of fishery management measures in bottom long line fishery might have caused a decline in the abundance of this species. The small effective population size might have favored inbreeding and increased the homozygosis in the albinism gene (Sanabria et al 2010).…”
