Abstract: Given a nonnegative integer $ g$, let $ \mathcal{P}(g)$ denote the set of integers $ N$ such that an arbitrary compact Riemann surface with genus $ g$ can be completely conformally and minimally immersed in $ {\mathbb{R}^3}$ (with finite total curvature) with exactly $ N$ punctures. We prove that the infimum of $ \mathcal{P}(g)$ is at most $ 4g$ and that the set $ \mathcal{P}(g)$ may not miss any $ 3g$ consecutive integers larger than the infimum of $ \mathcal{P}(g)$.
