Abstract

Data of the species scientific name is required to study biodiversity and conservation of local fish species. Nike and hundala are the local names for fish found in Gorontalo whose scientific names are unknown and recognized by local people as two different species of fish. This study aims to identify the genetic and species of nike and hundala fish. Nike and hundala specimens were collected using a fish net from the estuary of Gorontalo Bay and Bone River, Gorontalo, Indonesia in April 2018. Molecular analysis of fish over sequencing methods shows that nike and hundala at Gorontalo waters are alleged as Sicyopterus longifilis.
