Abstract

Red king crab (Paralithodes camtschaticus) was introduced into the Barents Sea in the 1960–1970s. At present, it occurs along the coast from Hammerfest (Northern Norway) to the (northeastern coast of Kola Peninsula). We studied the polymorphism of a mitochondrial gene encoding cytochrome oxidase (COI) and five nuclear microsatellite loci in four samples from the Barents Sea and two donor populations from the Western Kamchatka and Primorye (Russian Pacifics). No decrease in the genetic diversity of the introduced populations was observed. The results of PCA103 locusanalysis but some samples from the Barents Sea significantly differed from the Pacific populations according to the test for population differentiation demonstrated that the sample from Varrangerfjord was highly significantly different from the other five populations. As no significant differences between the other samples were found at this locus. We consider it to be a marker for Varangerfjord population differentiation. Possible reasons of this phenomenon are discussed.
