Abstract


A lack of genetic differentiation between Red Sea and Mediterranean populations of the Lessepsian rabbitfish, Siganus rivulatus, was evidenced using mitochondrial DNA (cytochrome b). This result implies that Mediterranean populations were not founded by a few individuals, but rather that immigration of S. rivulatus into the Mediterranean is a continuous process.
