The complete mitochondrial genome of Pabdah catfish, Ompok pabda (Hamilton, 1822) was determined by MiSeq platform. The genome was 16,512 bp in length, in which canonical 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNAs, 2 rRNAs, and a control region (D-Loop) were encoded. The overall A + T (55.10%) content was higher than G + C (44.90%). Total nine genes were located at the L strand, and remaining 28 genes were at the H strand. The start codon of 12 protein-coding genes was ATG, except for COX1 (GTG).
