Abstract

We investigated the transferability and characterized the genetic diversity of 18 microsatellite markers newly developed for the red mullet (Mullus barbatus) in populations of four different species of the Mullidae family: the striped red mullet (Mullus surmuletus), the golden-banded goatfish (Upeneus moluccensis), the West African goatfish (Pseudupeneus prayensis) and the yellow goatfish (Mulloidichthys martinicus). Results indicate that the loci are polymorphic to different extent in M. surmuletus (94%), U. moluccensis (83%), P. prayensis (78%), and M. martinicus (67%). The high rates of successful cross-amplification of microsatellite loci among Mullidae species will offer excellent opportunities to investigate the genetic structure of wild populations, to explore their conservation genetics and fisheries management and to study any future interaction and introgression between them. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
