Abstract

We report 15 polymorphic microsatellite loci isolated from the river prawn Macrobrachium nipponense. Their genetic characteristics were evaluated in 40 individuals from two Korean populations. The number of alleles ranged from 4 to 16, and the observed and expected heterozygosities ranged between 0.35 and 1.00 and 0.41 and 0.90, respectively. We assessed the cross-species amplification of each locus in five species of palaemonid prawn and two species of atyid prawn.
