Bullhead notothen, “a red-blooded Antarctic fish has just 11 chromosomes in its haploid set, but its recent ancestors had 24. A RAD-tag meiotic map for the Bullhead and comparative genomics showed that massive karyotype reduction resulted from pairwise fusion of the 22 largest chromosomes followed by the two smallest chromosomes separately joining two already fused chromosomes. Remarkably, no inversions mixed any of the fused chromosome segments. The skull of this specimen was cleaned by Southern Ocean isopods, whose voracious appetites make them the “dermestid beetles” of the Southern Ocean. See Amores et al. 2195–2207. Image: John H.
