Microsatellites are high-resolution genetic markers that may be applied to examine parentage, population structure and the direction and extent of dispersal. Here we present eight polymorphic microsatellite loci developed for the carybdeid jellyfish, Carukia barnesi. The loci were developed from a microsatellite-enriched, partial genomic DNA library and tested for polymorphism on animals from each of two geographically distinct populations, Lizard Island and Double Island, from the Great Barrier Reef. The number of alleles observed for each locus ranged from 7 to 19.
