Abstract

The species subject of our work belong to dif - ferent orders of Teleosts, one of which is the order of Clupeiformes consisting in two large families of commercial interest (Clupeidae and Engraulidae), which include the small fish com - monly known, respectively, for herring, sardines, shads, and sprats and anchovies. Their molecu - lar identification is useful because a common fraud is their species replacement. In addition, because of globalization, it is possible to find in our markets also other species of anchovy typical of different distribution areas, such as Japanese anchovy (Engraulis japonicus), the Peruvian Anchovy (E. ringens), the Atlantic Ali (E. anchoita) and the Californian anchovy (E. mor - dax). Due to the differentiation of the processed foodstuffs that characterizes the market, it is es - sential to develop tools for unequivocal and quick identification of the species present in the market even when morphological identification is no longer possible.
