Data from: Deep mitochondrial divergence in Baja California populations of an aquilopelagic elasmobranch: the golden cownose ray

Jonathan Sandoval-Castillo & Axayácatl Rocha-Olivares
Assessing the realized effect of dispersal in the genetic makeup of a species has significant evolutionary, ecological, and economical consequences. Here, we investigate the genetic diversity and population differentiation in the aquilopelagic golden cownose ray Rhinoptera steindachneri from the Gulf of California (GC) and the Pacific coast of Baja California (PCBC) using the mitochondrial NADH2 gene. Low levels of genetic diversity were found with only 4 polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism haplotypes among 76...
