DOI : 10.4194/TRJFAS20982 Viewed : 1063 - Downloaded : 590 This study provides the first set of 20 species-specific microsatellite loci for genetic population studies of Trachurus trecae, an important marine fishing resource for the African Atlantic coast. Twenty microsatellite loci were developed by next generation sequencing and tested by genotyping 48 animals collected along the Angolan Atlantic coast. The number of alleles per locus varied from 6 to 19, while the expected and observed heterozygosities varied from 0.73 to 0.94 and 0.16 to 0.86, respectively. These microsatellites are a valuable tool for further genetics monitoring of this species. Keywords : Short tandem repeat Population genetics Conservation Kunene Horse mackerel Marine resource
