In the context of stock enhancement for aquatic animals, the risk of negative genetic impacts of releasing hatchery-produced seedlings upon the genetic diversity of indigenous recipient populations becomes a growing concern. This issue is particularly relevant to threatened or rare species such as a member of right-eye flounder, the spotted halibut Verasper variegatus. We present here 29 microsatellite markers for spotted halibut, expecting that these markers could serve as a molecular tool of choice to address a wide range of conservation issues in this species.
