Karyotype of the invasive species Pterois volitans (Scorpaeniformes: Scorpaenidae) from Margarita Island, Venezuela

Abstract: Abstract:The genus Pterois includes nine valid species, native to the Red Sea and Indian Ocean throughout the Western Pacific. P. volitans and P. miles are native to the Indo-Pacific, and were introduced into Florida waters as a result of aquarium releases, and have been recently recognized as invaders of the Western Atlantic and Caribbean Sea (Costa Rica to Venezuela). Thus far, cytogenetic studies of the genus Pterois only cover basic aspects of three species, including P. volitans from Indo-Pacific Ocean. C… Show more

“…Chromosome preparations were obtained injecting 0.0125% colchicine intraperitoneally (1.0 ml/100 g body weight) 50 min before sacrificing, as described by Nirchio and Oliveira (2006). Before being sacrificed, the specimens received a numbing overdose of Benzocaine (250 mg/L) until the cessation of opercular movements (AVMA 2013).…”

“…Before being sacrificed, the specimens received a numbing overdose of Benzocaine (250 mg/L) until the cessation of opercular movements (AVMA 2013). Mitotic chromosome preparations were obtained by the conventional air-drying method, as described in Nirchio and Oliveira (2006).…”

“…The colonization process of the red lionfish, Pterois volitans (Linnaeus, 1758), has been well documented along the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea (Chevalier et al 2008, González et al 2009, Morris and Akins 2009, Schofield 2009, 2010, Aguilar-Perera and Tuz-Sulub 2010, Lasso-Alcalá and Posada 2010, Ruttenberg et al 2012, Ferreira et al 2015, Sandel et al 2015. Although cytogenetic, molecular, behavioural, and ecological studies of this species have been made (Cure et al 2012, Nirchio et al 2014, Coronado-Carrascal et al 2015, García-Rodríguez et al 2015, the size ranges reported for this species have not been well documented. The maximum total length of red lionfish reported by Randall et al (1990) was 380 mm TL.…”
