Eight polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized for the migratory freshwater fish Salminus brasiliensis (Characiformes) and tested on 67 individuals from nine geographically distant locations along the Paraná Basin. The number of alleles per locus ranged from four to 14, with observed heterozygosity estimates ranging from 0·15 to 0·79.
