Schizothorax macropogon is listed as Near Threatened species in International Union for Conservation of Nature Red List. It is restrictly distributed in the Yarlung Zangbo (upper Brahmaputra) River in Tibet, China. Till now, little is known about the mitochondrial genome information of this species. In this study, the complete mitochondrial DNA genome sequence of S. macropogon was determined. The mitogenome is a circular molecule of 16,588 bp in length. It consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 2 noncoding regions. Overall base composition of mitochondrial genome of S. macropogon was 29.82% A, 26.94% C, 17.74% G, and 25.50% T, with a high A+T content (55.32%). The complete mitogenome sequence of S. macropogon can be used in the studies on molecular systematics, phylogeography, stock evaluation, and conservation genetics.
