[Extract] From a geneticist's perspective, L. calcarifer is an interesting fish species to study due it its euryhaline, protandrous life-strategy, broad tropical geographic distribution, mass-spawning reproductive behaviour and economic importance to communities denizen to the area it naturally inhabits. The species is commercially exploited, both via wild fishery captures and through industrialized farming, and is also becoming a model tropical fish species for understanding the impacts of future climate change. As a result, various aspects of the genetics of this species have received considerable attention, both towards using genetic approaches to understand population structure, diversity and genetic connectivity for fishery management purposes, through to deciphering the genome and mapping of genes influencing traits of commercial importance to assist future aquaculture breeding programs.

This chapter summarizes the current state of genetic knowledge of L. calcarifer.
