Abstract

The continuing over-exploitation of traditional coastal stocks has resulted in the shift of commercial fishing towards deep-sea ecosystems in many parts of the world. The effects on target and non-target species have been dramatic; particularly for the deep-sea sharks. With the aim of providing tools that will allow the assessment of population genetic structure of Centroselachus crepidater, novel microsatellite loci have been developed for this deep-sea elasmobranch. Seven of these markers showed between 3 and 7 alleles per locus in two North Atlantic populations, with observed and expected heterozygosities between 0.18–0.95 and 0.25–0.82, respectively. Additionally, ten loci cross-amplify in other Elasmobranch species.
