Abstract

We describe the isolation and characterisation of microsatellite loci for Pagrus auratus and cross amplification in another sparid, Acanthopagrus butcheri. Of 35 loci tested, 12 appear to be appropriate for population genetic studies of P. auratus, which are essential to inform management responses to evidence of overexploitation of this species. Three were ideal for A. butcheri and, when combined with published loci, can be used to assess the genetic implications of restocking depleted populations of this species.
