The yellowfin seabream, Acanthopagrus latus, is widely distributed throughout the Indo-West Pacific. This fish is an ideal model species in which to study the mechanism of sex reversal since it exhibits a specific feature: sequential hermaphrodite. Here, we report a chromosome-scale assembly of the A. latus based on PacBio and Hi-C data. 22,485 protein-coding genes were annotated in whole genome level using transcriptome data. Taken together, this highly accurate, chromosome-level reference genome can provide a valuable resource to elucidate the mechanism of sex reversal for A. latus.
