Abstract

We report the isolation and development of 12 novel microsatellite loci for the reef-associated camouflage grouper, Epinephelus polyphekadion, a near-threatened grouper which is widely distributed, little managed, and heavily fished throughout the Indo-Pacific region. The number of alleles ranged from two to 11. No evidence of linkage disequilibrium was found among loci, but two of the loci showed significant departure from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium. These microsatellite loci will be useful for assessing population genetic structure and monitoring genetic diversity of the species.
