The complete mitochondrial genome of Macrourus witsoni was determined in this study by the Long-read Technology, such as PacBio Sequel System. The Long-read Technology, which can sequence continuously the whole vertebrate mitochondrial genome, allows more accurate genomes to be completed. The circular form of its mitochondrial genome was 16,714bp, which contained 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA, and 2 rRNA. The gene orders of M.witsoni was identical to that of the other species of Macrouridae family. Phylogenetic analysis indicated M. witsoni was mostly close to C.kishinouyei in the Macrouridae family.
