Development and Characterization of Microsatellite Markers in the Gray Triggerfish (Balistes capriscus)

Twenty one microsatellite markers were isolated from two enriched genomic libraries of the gray triggerfish, Balistes capriscus. The number of alleles detected varied between 4 and 27, and expected heterozygosity estimates ranged from 0.502 to 0.967 (n = 35). Genotypic proportions conformed to Hardy-Weinberg expectations for all but two of the loci. The microsatellite markers developed in this work will be precious to conservation genetics studies of the gray triggerfish.
