Abstract
The fish diversity of Chuuk Micronesia is currently under threat due to rapid changes in the coral reef ecosystem. Thus, accurate fish identification using DNA barcodes is fundamental for exploring species biodiversity and resource protection. In this study, we analyzed 162 fish mitochondrial DNA cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) barcodes from Chuuk Micronesia. Consequently, we identified 95 species from 53 genera in 26 families and seven orders. The average Kimura 2-parameter genetic distances within species, genera, families, and orders were calculated as 0.17%, 11.78%, 15.63%, and 21.90%, respectively. Also, we have utilized DNA barcodes to perform genetic divergence and phylogenetic analysis of families recognized as dominant groups in Chuuk State. Our findings confirm that DNA barcodes using COI are an effective approach in identifying coral reef fish species. We anticipate that the results of this study will provide baseline data for the protection of coral reef fish biodiversity at Chuuk Micronesia.
