Genetic diversify among Balkan trout populations based on RAPD analysis

Genetic diversify among Balkan trout populations based on RAPD analysis Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers were used to estimate the population structure and phylogenetic relationships among samples of the Salmo trutta complex that inhabit the Balkan Peninsula. Five random oligodecamers were selected to amplify DNA from 140 fish from seven populations. Using these primers, 55 discernible DNA fragments were generated, of which 50 (90.91%) were polymorphic. The statistical results indicated that there was low genetic diversity within populations (with an average percentage of polymorphic bands (P) of 11.69% and a Nei’s genetic diversity index (h) of 0.035), but at the same time high genetic differentiation among populations (F ST = 0.89). The distribution of genetic diversity among Balkan trout may result from their evolutionary history and reflects genetic drift coupled with bottleneck phenomena. Overall, RAPDs proved valuable tools for quick and reliable stock discrimination and provided information that might be useful regarding conservation and management of trout.
