Genetic diversity and population genetic structure of the miiuy croaker, Miichthys miiuy, in the East China Sea by microsatellite markers

Author(s): Y. Qin, D.Q. Sun, T.J. Xu, X.Z. Liu and Y.N. Sun

Genetic diversity and patterns of population structure of the miiuy croaker were investigated using SSR markers. A set of 10 microsatellite loci revealed 40 alleles; the number of alleles varied from 2 to 10 for each marker. A relatively high level of genetic variability was observed between miiuy croaker individuals. Genetic diversity was relatively high within populations with corresponding high average gene flow.
