Session: Primitive Fishes: Scientific, Cultural, and Commercial Importance

Affiliations: Russian Federal Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography (VNIRO), Moscow, Russia / Departamento de Zoologia, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil

Lead contact: Alexei M. Orlov

Description: Non-teleost fishes that are the living representatives of ancient lineages are considered to be “primitive” or “living fossils”. More derived fishes, such as cichlids, sunfishes, and perches, are generally considered to be “modern”. These terms (primitive versus modern) are not entirely accurate in terms of vertebrate evolution. According to modern concept, primitive fishes include hagfishes (Myxini), lampreys (Petromyzonti), sharks and skates/rays (Elasmobranchii), ratfishes/chimaeras (Holocephali), coelacanths (Coelacanthi), lungfishes and tetrapods (Dipneusti), bichirs/reedfishes (Cladistii), sturgeons (Acipenseridae) and paddlefishes (Polyodontidae), gars (Lepisosteidae), bowfins (Amiidae) and some others. The main purpose of this symposium is to provide an overview of the current status of knowledge on the variety of topics related to primitive fishes, including (but not limited by):

  • Evolution, phylogeny, phylogeography, and molecular biology;
  • Taxonomy and zoogeography;
  • Ecology and life history;
  • Harvesting, stock assessment, and fisheries management;
  • Artificial propagation and aquaculture;
  • Conservation and stock rebuilding.

Expected Audience: We expected broad target audience from around the globe represented by interdisciplinary scientists dealing with evolution, phylogeny, phylogeography, molecular biology, taxonomy, zoogeography, ecology, and life history traits of primitive fishes with special focus on issues related to harvesting, stock assessment, fisheries management, artificial propagation, aquaculture conservation and stock rebuilding of these diverse and species-rich group of fishes.
