Several microsatellite loci which were developed and reported for turbot Scophthalmus maximus were examined for Scophthalmus maeoticus. Only five of these microsatellite loci were successfully amplified with new developed PCR conditions and can be used for routine analysis of stock identification of S. maeoticus.
