Abstract The complete mitochondrial DNA sequence is now recorded for the commercially important shrimp northern, or pink, shrimp, Pandalus borealis. The 15,905 bp genome is circular and consists of the genes known for other metazoans and with the same gene order as for Penaeus and Drosophila among others.
