Abstract

Eighteen microsatellite loci (13 di- and 5 tri-repeats) were isolated from swordfish and characterized in two populations from the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. The number of alleles per locus ranged from two to 29 and the observed heterozygosity from 0.302 to 0.953. All but one locus conformed to Hardy-Weinberg expectations and there was no evidence for linkage disequilibrium between loci. © 2009 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
