This paper reports on the karyotyping of mullet fish species, Liza klunzingeri, endemic of the Persian Gulf. The metaphase chromosome spreads, obtained from kidney cells of 13 specimens were examined. The diploid chromosome number was found to be 2n=48. The karyotype was discovered to be consisted of 48 acrocentric chromosome pairs. The arm number was determined to be NF=48. The chromosome number observed in this fish is the same as the majority of Mugil fish, thus confirming the commonality of this feature in the family.
Keywords: Liza klunzingeri, Chromosome, Karyotype, Persian Gulf
