The relatively long pelagic larval duration of Pomacentrus amboinensis, a tropical fish, suggests the potential for long-distance dispersal; however, several nongenetic studies have found substantial self-recruitment at one location. To analyse patterns of connectivity of this species, primers for nine independent microsatellite loci were developed for P. amboinensis using a magnetic bead enrichment protocol. Twenty individuals from one location were analysed and observed heterozygosities ranged from 0.7 to 0.95. Eight of nine loci were in Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium and no evidence of linkage or null alleles were found.
