Abstract

Microsatellite markers have been developed from a complementary DNA (cDNA) library of red sea bream, Chrysophrys major. Twenty-eight microsatellites were selected for designing microsatellite primers, of which 11 gave working primer pairs. Observed and expected heterozygosities varied from 0.33 to 1.00 and from 0.38 to 0.83, respectively. Five additional fish species assessed for cross-species amplification revealed between one and six positive amplifications and between 0 and 6 polymorphic loci per species.
