Calanus glacialis, a marine planktonic copepod, is a keystone species in the Arctic Ocean. In this study, we shotgun sequenced the total DNA of one C. glacialis individual, using the NextSeq® Illumina platform, in order to determine its mitochondrial genome sequence. We successfully assembled and annotated this 20,674 bp long sequence, which included 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes and 22 tRNA genes. Common gene-coding regions of 19 other species were used to reconstruct a phylogenetic tree, using mitogenomes of the phylogenetically closest copepods available. The new resource described here constitutes a tool of interest for better understanding the structure and dynamics of C. glacialis populations.
